Organizers: Goal Passed To Put Luna Laws on 2012 Ballot

Posted By on Wed, May 25, 2011 at 5:59 PM

Organizers of an effort to force a referendum on school chief Tom Luna's education overhaul package say they have "enough signatures" to force a vote on the three controversial laws in November 2012. A total of 47,432 valid signatures are required on each of three petitions to put the three "Students Come First" laws to a referenda.

A spokesman for Idahoans for Responsible Education Reform said the group will continue to collect signatures before the June 6 deadline to turn petitions in to the Secretary of State's office.

"We know that people don't want to see the larger class sizes, layoffs and unfunded technology mandates that these laws are already causing," said Mike Lanza, IREA chair.

County clerks offices across Idaho are verifying the signatures, but the petitions need to be officially qualified by Secretary of State Ben Ysursa.
