December 29, 2003

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Last year, Council member Kevin Chavous tried to force 3-year olds to
go to school. This year, he wants to give tax breaks to public
school teachers. Chavous has introduced a bill in the DC Council
that would further subsidize public school educations. Bill 15-520,
the "Teachers Tax Credit Amendment Act of 2003,"
[http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?ID=1247] would give teachers a
property tax reduction on homes that they buy in the District.

HSLDA is officially neutral on this bill, as it would not directly
impact homeschoolers, except insofar as they pay taxes.

The hearing on this bill will be held on January 7, 2004, at 1:00
p.m. in the Council Chambers of The John Wilson Building, 1350
Pennsylvania Ave, N.W.

We encourage citizens to become familiar with the legislative process
in the District. This bill, relating to education and taxes, could
be an excellent way to introduce your children to civics-or even
brush up on your own knowledge. It's the involvement of
homeschooling families in the political process that preserves the
freedoms we currently enjoy. Thanks for training the next generation
of political leaders!

Sincerely,


Scott Somerville
HSLDA Staff Attorney
