        Staff Reports

        Thursday, August 1, 2013

         

        SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A 16-year-old transgender teen from Manteca, Calif., on Wednesday delivered petitions containing more that 6,000 signatures urging Gov. Jerry Brown to sign legislation that would change the way California public schools treat transgender students.

         

        Ashton Lee says the bill, approved by California lawmakers on July 3, would make school a lot better for him and other transgender students.
