Montana--New Location for Hearing on Senate Bill 276

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

February 6, 2003

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Due to the efforts of Steve White of the Montana Coalition of Home
Educators, the location for the hearing on Senate Bill 276 has been
moved to a larger hearing room to accommodate the number of people
expected to attend. The hearing will now be conducted in Room 303 of
the Capitol, known as the Old Supreme Court Room. It is located on
the third floor above the Rotunda.

For those planning to either attend or testify at the hearing, a pre-
hearing meeting has been scheduled for 1:00 p.m. at the Hannaford
Baptist Church (830 N. Hannaford Street) in Helena. The church is
located one block north of Wendy's Hamburgers on Prospect Avenue.
(Prospect is the street you enter Helena, when arriving from the
east). Wendy's is across Prospect from McDonalds). Simply turn north
at Wendy's and go one block to the church.

S.B. 276 would require homeschool students to take state tests
adopted by the Montana Board of Public Education. It is crucial in
protecting your academic freedoms that your family attend this
hearing. We must show the Committee members that home educators
oppose this bill. I will be there to testify on behalf of our member
families in Montana.

For more information on S.B. 276 and why we oppose it, visit our
website at:
