New Hampshire--Update on House Bill 1408: Home Schoolers Pack Hearing, Oppose Bill

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

January 23, 2002

Dear New Hampshire Members and Friends,

Every chair was filled, and there was standing room only when the
Children and Family Law Committee conducted a hearing on January 22,
2001, on House Bill 1408. The home schoolers present overwhelmingly
opposed the measure, which would give each city and town in the state
the freedom to enact its own truancy law.

Many spoke out against H.B. 1408, including Christian Home Educators
of New Hampshire President Jim Parison. Members of the committee
seemed skeptical regarding the need for this bill and asked the
sponsor, Kathleen Taylor (D-District 11, Strafford County), some very
tough questions.

Home School Legal Defense Association is cautiously optimistic that
the committee will vote to kill this bill. Thank you for calling to
voice your opinion and for attending the hearing! Your contribution
was crucial.

Sincerely yours,

Scott A. Woodruff, Esq.
