Tim Donnelly-led repeal effort of vaccine law fails
Los Angeles Daily News

The fight to repeal California’s controversial new mandatory vaccine law — led by former assemblyman and radio talk show host Tim Donnelly — officially ended this week before it even got to the ballot box, as opponents on Wednesday conceded an ill-fated petition drive fell woefully short on signatures.

The group’s petition drive requires 365,880 signatures by Thursday to qualify a referendum to repeal the law for the November 2016 ballot, a target Donnelly conceded they will miss by a wide margin. As of Wednesday evening, 176,157 signatures had been received by the Secretary of State.
