Learn more in our 10/16/17 news release.

The final State Senate vote on September 14 was 26 yes (Democrats) and 12 no (Republicans). One day earlier, on September 13, SB 179 had passed the 80-member California State Assembly (57 yes, 21 no, 1 abstention). Joining the ruling Democrats in voting yes were "Republicans" Catherine Baker of Contra Costa and Alameda counties, Rocky Chavez and Brian Maienschein of north San Diego County, and Chad Mayes of Yucca Valley/Palm Springs. Notably, the only abstention was Democrat Jim Cooper of south Sacramento County, who apparently had crime concerns about SB 179 (it increases identity fraud).

RE: SB 179 -- Veto Request

Dear Governor Brown,

Please veto SB 179, an unnecessary bill that weakens current standards against identity fraud.

As you know, the growing problem of identity fraud burdens law enforcement, government agencies, and financial institutions. In 2016, identity fraud cost Americans $16 billion. This is becoming a crisis, and we must do more, not less, to combat it. Therefore, any bill that weakens verification standards is not good public policy.

The current process requiring a licensed physician to verify and a court to confirm gender change is reasonable and prudent. Unfortunately, SB 179 mandates that a court accept as "conclusive proof" unverified claims of gender change. This subjectivity is reason enough for a veto. Reducing an established legal identity verification process to paying $11 for a new birth certificate permits an unsubstantiated claim to unjustifiably morph into legal fact.

Because SB 179 is unnecessary, unwise, and unsound, it deserves your veto.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

YOUR SIGNATURE
YOUR NAME
YOUR TITLE
YOUR MAILING ADDRESS

WHAT'S WRONG WITH SB 179

Have you heard about the radical bill inventing an official 3rd "gender"? Senate Bill 179 would explode the envelope of sexual anarchy by creating an official 3rd "gender" in California.

On drivers' license applications and drivers' licenses, SB 179 would require 3 "genders" to be offered -- male, female, or "nonbinary," meaning not exclusively male or female, or a combination of two or more "genders."


Anyone would be able to "change" their gender, simply by filing a form with the state. SB 179 says this signed form "shall be accepted as conclusive proof of gender change," thus eliminating the current law requiring a physician's affidavit affirming that "clinically appropriate treatment for the purpose of gender transition" has occurred. 

Minors who want to "change" their gender could do so by getting one parent to agree, which would automatically drag the disagreeing parent into court to "show cause."

WHO'S PUSHING THIS BILL

Authored by 9 California Democrats who are either homosexual practitioners or support the unnatural, unhealthy, "LGBTIQ" agenda, SB 179 cannot be beaten on merit. But, like so many bad bills, it can defeated on process.SB 179 has already passed the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee, which is heavily dominated by Democrats.

You see, the Democrat politicians in control of California government believe in sexual anarchy. Whatever sexual behavior or sexual "identity" anyone wants to be is wickedly OK with them.

Yet SB 179 ushering in new identity fraud should concern any legislator who claims to be anti-crime.

HOW SB 179 WOULD CONFUSE KIDS & CREATE NEW IDENTITY FRAUD

1. Confusing children: Children would be lied to about Nature and health, and entertain the idea that it's OK for a doctor to cut off their healthy body parts. At the DMV, 15- and 16-year-olds getting learner's permits and driver's licenses will be told they are either "male," "female," or "nonbinary."

2. Identity fraud: SB 179 eliminates the current state law that requires anyone seeking to "change" their gender to seek and receive a physician's declaration that "gender change" is occurring. However, under SB 179, anyone could file a simple form with the State of California to "change" their gender. Imagine how police and courts would be befuddled by this new identity fraud. Imagine the arrest of a biological male whose driver's license says "nonbinary." Or someone whose new birth certificate says "nonbinary," but they dress as a man one day and a woman the other. And if one's sex can be officially "changed" by simply -- even repeatedly -- filing a form with the state government, it's going to be a lot harder to accurately identify "nonbinary" accused criminals in open court.  

 


Call Governor Jerry Brown and say:
 "Please veto SB 179. This bill invites identity fraud by eliminating a physician's affidavit of gender change. Protect our courts and police and financial institutions from fraud. Veto SB 179."
