Montana--Senate Victory on SB 295, Bill Now Moves to House

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

February 25, 2003

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

educators, Senate Bill 295 passed the Senate 31-19. This reversed an
earlier Senate vote of 24-25 against the bill. Parent-taught driver's

SB 295 has now been sent on to the House where there will be a
committee hearing in the next couple of weeks. Please contact your
state representatives and urge them to vote in favor of SB 295.


Please call or email your state representatives expressing your

parents to teach driver's education to their children. This
legislation will guarantee access to driver's education to all
