A bill that prohibits public school boards from prohibiting books and educational materials that discuss gender and race was reportedly passed by California lawmakers last week, and Governor Gavin Newsom is expected to sign it into law within the next month.

After the California Senate passed the bill mostly along party lines, Newsom voiced his support for AB 1078, which would change the custom of locally run schools and forbid school boards in conservative areas from removing material they feel disagreeable.

Asa Hutchinson, a former governor of Arkansas, and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy are also anticipated at the event.

Legislators approved the bill as Temecula Valley Unified School District changed its mind and adopted a curriculum that had been rejected by the school board in July after Newsom threatened it with a $1.5 million fine and other repercussions.

Parents objected specifically to lessons on Harvey Milk, the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California.

Notably, Milk was accused of rape when in his 30s and had a string of sexual connections with underage boys.

The reference of the Gay Liberation Front, which parents related to NAMBLA, a pedophilia advocacy group, was another piece of LGBT content that parents felt was unsuitable for children of that age.

They also discovered some content that was politically or ideologically prejudiced.

The proposal, which would instantly go into force as California students continue with their academic calendar, is anticipated to be signed by Newsom within the next month, according to local media.
