Senate Bill 158: Changes School Attendance Conditions Associated with the Issuance of Driver's Licenses
Sponsors:
Senator Tom Young, Jr.
Summary:

This bill would prohibit issuance of a beginner's permit or driver's license to any person under 18 unless the person was enrolled in school or an adult education program or the person had a high school diploma or GED. One provision of the bill would require a home school association to report to the Department of Motor Vehicles whenever a student had more than 10 unlawful absences, had been expelled, or had dropped out of school.

This is nothing more than a back-door approach to increasing the compulsory attendance age.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose.
Action Requested:
None at this time
Status:
