March 14, 2003

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Thank you for your calls and email on Colorado House Bill 1310. Your
efforts won the victory! Over 1,000 people contacted the committee,
knocking the bill off the fast track.

H.B. 1310 would have made the elusive concept of "mental abuse" a
felony.

After receiving so many calls, the sponsor of the bill,
Representative Hefley, worked with us and concluded that the bill
should die. The Judiciary Committee voted to kill the bill by a vote
of 9 to 2, with Representative Hefley herself voting to kill the
bill.

Representative Hefley, who is also the Chairman of the House
Judiciary Committee, has indicated that she would like to work with
HSLDA next year on bills that may affect homeschoolers' interests.
Specifically, she has pledged to help HSLDA implement reforms to
Colorado child welfare law.

For more information on these reforms visit:

Special thanks to Treon Goosen and Representative Kevin Lundberg for
their efforts in killing H.B. 1310.

Thank you again for your diligence in calling the committee!

Sincerely,

Chris Klicka
HSLDA Senior Counsel
