South Dakota--Homeschool Monitoring Bill Dies Quiet Death

======================================================================
From the HSLDA E-lert Service...
======================================================================

February 12, 2004


Dear South Dakota HSLDA members and friends:


On February 5, the Senate Education Committee voted down Senate Bill
156, a bill that would have forced public schools to monitor
homeschoolers' year-end tests.

HSLDA worked closely with South Dakota Christian Home Educator's
lobbyist Carroll Torberson and discovered a solid majority of the
committee were opposed to the bill. As expected, when the bill came
up for a vote, the committee voted to defer consideration until the
day after the legislative session ends, effectively killing it.

We did not ask our members to make calls. We were convinced the bill
was so badly flawed that calls were unnecessary. We're grateful
common sense prevailed.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom.


Sincerely,

Scott A. Woodruff, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney
