Since the bill would have increased taxes, it required a two-thirds vote of approval. It previously received sufficient votes in the Senate, but appeared questionable as to if it would receive sufficient votes in the Assembly.
Brad Dacus, President of Pacific Justice Institute, previously noted, “Forcing Boy Scouts to allow biological females to camp with the boys because they identify as a boy is ludicrous.” He also stated that, “SB 323 makes the atrocious attempt to force organizations to ultimately choose between changing their moral beliefs to align with those of the oppressive LGBT lobby, or shutting down their organization all together.”
Although this bill is dead for the remainder of the year, PJI will be vigilant in defending the beliefs of youth groups should this bill resurface in the future.
