Oregon--Governor Vetoes Homeschool Freedom Bill

June 23, 2003

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

In a major disappointment to home educators in Oregon, on June 16,
2003, Governor Ted Kulongoski vetoed legislation that would have
removed unnecessary state oversight of homeschools. Senate Bill 761
had passed both the Oregon Senate and House of Representatives by
healthy margins. Unfortunately, there are not enough votes in the
House to attempt an override of the Governor's veto.

Many thanks to all of you who were faithful to write, email, and call
your state legislators. We are encouraged by the great progress made
during this legislative session and believe the foundation has been
laid for enactment of a bill in the future. Oregon homeschool leaders
plan to have a similar bill introduced in the next legislative
session in 2005.

To see more information on this and other bills HSLDA is monitoring
in Oregon, visit our website at:

Sincerely,

Dewitt T. Black III
HSLDA Senior Counsel
