“NOM is urging its members in California to assist in the effort
to gather nearly 505,000 required voter signatures to place the
repeal on the November 2014 ballot, suspending the law until

our children and grandchildren,” Brown added.
Frank Schubert, NOM's national political director, heads Privacy
For All Students, the campaign to repeal the law.
