Progress in Wyoming


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Good news! House Bill 76, which HSLDA has been tracking, has passed
the House of Representatives. HSLDA has been working with state
leaders and legislators to eliminate a section penalizing failure to
report child abuse, and add a section that penalizes false reporting
of child abuse. Due to the great reputation of homeschool families
and their lobbying ability, as well as the hard work of state and
local homeschool leaders, both positive changes have been made. This
bill now goes to the Senate. We will keep you updated on its
progress.

In addition, please continue to keep this legislative session in your
prayers. So far, the hard work of homeschoolers has been rewarded
with great success, but we need to continue in the power of God to
accomplish our goals! A different piece of legislation, HB 231, which
would raise the compulsory attendance age, is making its way through
the legislative process. Thank you to everyone who has called to
express opposition to House Bill 231. As many of you have probably
discovered, the voter hotline has its limitations. Please use the
additional information below to continue to oppose HB 231. We will
keep you updated as the situation develops.


REQUESTED ACTION

Please use the voter hotline, (307) 777 8683, to request that your
representative vote against House Bill 231. However, if you would like
to leave a message, or contact a number of legislators including
members of the Education Committee, please call the House of
Representatives receptionist at (307) 777-7852.


Sincerely,

Scott Somerville
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> Have you ever yelled into the wind, only to hear the sound of your
voice blown back at you?

It's hard to be heard in the midst of a storm. Trying to influence
federal legislation is much like yelling to be heard while
standing in a fierce wind. Yet when 80,000 voices join together,
they become a powerful force that cannot be drowned out.
Join HSLDA to be heard above the tempests that threaten homeschool
freedoms.
