Hawaii--Your Calls Have Defeated the Daytime Curfew Bills


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Thank you for your calls on the Daytime Curfew Bills, Senate Bill 1014
and House Bill 226. Because of your calls the Senate Education and
Military Affairs Committee has voted 5-0 to "hold" the Senate version.
This means the bill is dead for this year!

In addition, the House version of the bill has also been defeated for
this year! We have been assured by the House Education Committee
Chairman, Representative Roy M. Takumi, that House Bill 226 will not
be scheduled for a hearing for the rest of this legislative session.

We are convinced that your calls, despite the fact that the bills had
broad support, caused the Hawaii legislature to vote against daytime
curfews. It demonstrates once again that homeschoolers can make a
difference even when the momentum is against us.

If these bills had passed they would have prohibited a minor, who was
of compulsory attendance age, from being in public from the hours of
8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. This legislation undermined the freedom and
liberty that we enjoy in the United States.

Since Hawaii is in the first year of a two year legislative session it
is possible for these bills to be re-introduced next year. However, we
will continue to monitor these bills to help protect the rights of
homeschool parents in Hawaii.

Thank you for all your calls over the past few weeks!

Sincerely,


Thomas Schmidt
HSLDA Staff Attorney

If you pass on a legacy of freedom, your children and their
children's children will thank you. But freedom is never secure;
it must always be guarded. Membership with HSLDA is an investment
in the future that can be passed on to future generations of
