From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

February 14, 2003

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Yesterday we issued a last minute request for calls to the Senators
on the Transportation Committee. The bill had just been transferred
there from the Education and Health Committee.

Due to a procedural oversight, the bill was not heard yesterday.
Amendments were made, however, and we expect the Transportation
Committee to hold a special session soon to vote on this bill alone.
The vote could be held without time enough to alert our members. It
could even occur on Saturday.

After the committee acts, the bill could go quickly to the senate


Please call your own senator and as many senators on the committee as
you can and give them this message: "Please vote in favor of H.B.
2404. Vote to give homeschool parents the choice to teach their
children how to drive."

Senate Transportation Committee:

SEN. JOHN WATKINS - 804-698-7510 in Richmond, 804-379-2063 in
Midlothian, or e-mail (It would be best if he heard

Powhatan Counties; parts of Chesterfield, Cumberland, Goochland, and
Henrico Counties; and part of Richmond City.)

SEN. MALFOURD "BO" TRUMBO - 804-698-7522 in Richmond, 540-473-2781 in

SEN. WALTER STOSCH - 804-698-7512 in Richmond, 804-527-7780 in Glen
Allen, or e-mail (It would be best if he heard

SEN. HENRY MARSH - 804-698-7516 in Richmond, 804-648-9073 at his
local office in Richmond, or e-mail (It
would be best if he heard from constituents in his district, which
includes parts of Chesterfield and Prince George Counties; all of

Richmond Cities. Tell him that Sens. Lambert and Puckett are co-
patrons, as well as Dels. Councill and Stump, and that Sens. Lucas
