This is a huge victory for freedom and a huge blow to the Enviro-Statists in Sacramento! I’m a bit surprised though that these signatures gained final approval at all considering the history of this partisan Secretary of State’s office.
The California SOS has history of throwing out and invalidating otherwise qualified signatures for certain pro-liberty ballot measures! If you remember, Debra Bowen, our previous Secretary of State, refused to sign off on thousands of signatures for the transgender bathroom repeal measure and the Six California’s measure. She was even rebuked by a state judge in the bathroom repeal case for disenfranchising voters!
This time, it appears the plastic bag industry has prevailed and this referendum will go before the voters in 20 months! The beautiful thing about this is Jerry Brown’s statewide ban is halted until then!
We don’t get too much good news these days on the left coast, so when something like this does happen, it’s important to recognize it and celebrate! Read below!
