Montana--Driver Education Bill Dies


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

On April 12, 2005, the Senate Highways and Transportation Committee
tabled House Bill 673, the parent-taught driver education bill. This
effectively kills this bill for the 2005 legislative session.

This bill would have established a way for parents to provide driver's
education as an acceptable alternative to obtaining the training
through the public school system. Students instructed by their parents
under the proposed law would have been able to obtain a learning
permit so long as a parent met certain requirements. This bill would
not have prohibited parents from teaching their children how to drive,
as they are now entitled to do. It would have empowered parents to
choose their own curriculum and to provide the training now only
offered through the local school district.

Thank you for your calls, emails, and letters to legislators about
this bill. We are hopeful that this type of legislation will be
enacted when the Legislature meets again in 2007.

Sincerely,


Dewitt T. Black, III
HSLDA Senior Counsel
