A legal group is offering California citizens a way to challenge the state's newly passed transgender bathroom law.

A petition for a ballot referendum challenging the measure that allows students in the the state's public schools to participate in sex-segregated facilities and activities based on the gender they choose is now available for download online. More than 500,000 signatures of California citizens are needed by November to qualify the proposal.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)"The passage of this bill is nothing less than irresponsible behavior by state lawmakers," contends Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute. "To jeopardize the safety and privacy of young children all for the fear of offending the forceful LGBT lobby is disturbing. We're happy that parents and citizens now have the recourse to challenge this law and make sure all students are protected."

If the referendum does qualify, AB 1266 would be placed on hold, giving voters a chance to decide on the controversial measure in the state's next general election.
