Illinois-Child Welfare Investigation Reform Passes Senate!


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Child welfare reform continues to advance in the Illinois
Legislature.

S.B. 2448 creates crucial due process protections for homeschoolers
and other families faced with child welfare investigations. It was
recently passed unanimously by the Health and Human Services
Committee and has now passed the entire Senate unanimously!

Senator Peter Roskam, the sponsor of the bill, is carefully guiding
S.B. 2448 through the legislature. We are very grateful for his work
and also to the Christian Home Educator Coalition of Illinois, who
worked to secure Senator Roskam as the sponsor and continues to work
in the Illinois legislature to ensure passage.

We will continue to update members on the progress of this bill. Our
strategy at this point is to pass the bill without drawing
significant attention to it.

If this law is passed it will keep social workers properly chained by
the Constitution and they will be liable for making certain they
respect the parental and Fourth Amendment rights of families.

We are thankful for everyone's efforts to enact this legislation, and
hope to pass it through the House quickly.


Sincerely,

Chris Klicka
Senior Counsel
Home School Legal Defense Association
