Referendum Drive Greets Ed 'Reform'

No sooner had Gov. Butch Otter signed SB 1184, the third major school-reform bill, into law, than a new group of parents and teachers calling itself “Idahoans for Responsible Education Reform” had delivered the preliminary paperwork to the Idaho Secretary of State's office for a referendum seeking to overturn the new law. “Frankly, this is very much a parent-driven effort,” said Mike Lanza, a Boise father of two who's joined Boise parent Maria Greeley to form the new group. Secretary of State Ben Ysursa received the documents and said, “We'll expedite this … the clock is ticking”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here. (SR photo: Betsy Russell)

Question: Do you think the group backing the referendum to Tom Luna's education "reform" can collect 47,432 signatures to land on the 2012 Idaho general election ballot?
