Kentucky--Your Calls Made a Difference!


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

On February 20, HSLDA urged Kentucky homeschoolers to contact
Representative Rick Nelson (D-87) to urge him to withdraw House Bill
474, which would raise the compulsory attendance age in Kentucky to
18. Within days, reports began to come back to HSLDA that this bill
was unlikely to move. Soon, HSLDA member families indicated that
they had reached Representative Nelson, who was willing to withdraw
his support from HB 474 after learning of its detrimental affect
towards homeschooled families. On March 4, we contacted
Representative Nelson ourselves, and he has confirmed that he has
withdrawn HB 474.

We want to thank every Kentucky homeschooler who contacted
Representative Nelson. Your vigilance helps maintain liberty for us
all. We also want to express our appreciation to Representative
Nelson, who was willing to withdraw his own bill after learning of
its unintended consequences on hardworking homeschoolers. Active
citizens like you and responsive legislators like Representative
Nelson make participatory democracy work.


Sincerely,

Scott Somerville
HSLDA Staff Attorney
