New Jersey--Homeschoolers Preempt Stealth Passage of AB 4033

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

January 13, 2004

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Your tremendous efforts worked! AB 4033 died last Monday at the end
of the 2002-2003 legislative session because it was never brought up
for a vote.

In the rush and confusion of the last day of the legislative session
we suspected that Assemblywoman Loretta Weinberg (D-37) might use a
parliamentary tactic, thereby avoiding a public hearing, to obtain
passage of this harsh homeschool bill. You did a fantastic job
alerting every lawmaker in the state!

HSLDA is working closely with other organizations on this issue:
Tricounty Home Educators Association, New Jersey Homeschool
Association, Education Network of Christian Homeschoolers of New
Jersey, Unschoolers Network, Catholic Homeschoolers of New Jersey,
and Eagle Forum of New Jersey. Representatives of these groups met
last Saturday in East Windsor and affirmed their commitment to work
together toward stopping any legislative effort to restrict home

As of this writing, Weinberg has filed 72 bills as primary sponsor in
the 2004-2005 Assembly, and 88 as a co-sponsor, but none deal with
homeschooling. We will watch the situation carefully.

Thank you for standing with us to protect homeschool freedom in New


Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Staff Attorney
