Harvey Milk Day Passes Assembly - Call Gov to Veto!


From BeetleBlogger:

Today SB 572 passed the Assembly and now goes to the State Senate for a quick concurrence vote, then to Governor Schwarzenegger for his signature or veto. He vetoed Harvey Milk Day last year, but it’s unknown what he’ll do this year.

SB 572 will declare every May 22 Harvey Milk Day in California. Milk was a San Francisco county supervisor and homosexual activists. According to SB 572, school children will learn about and honor Milk at school every May 22. There is hope that Governor Schwarzenegger could veto this bill again this year.

It is crucial that you contact Governor Schwarzenegger and urge him to veto SB 572!

Governor Schwarzenegger (916) 445-2841

Go Christa Jeanne! You're still a Californian! Harvey Milk Day is such a waste of educational time. Not only are kids not learning what they ought, but their home values are being denigrated and replaced with other values. School isn't the place for social politicking.

Arnold's still got it on his desk, hopefully he'll do the right thing and veto again. I don't have a lot of faith in him, but he is running for relection so....who knows!
