Illinois--Calls Still Needed to Defeat Compulsory Attendance Bill


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

We appreciate all of you who have continued to call the House
Elementary and Secondary Education Committee Members. We believe your
calls are making an impact.

Senate Bill 409 was not called before the committee. Although the
opposition to the bill was already strong, there were several
homeschooling families who, after contacting committee members, gained
a few more "No" votes. Nevertheless, we still need your calls to
ensure that this bill does not pass.

The bill must be approved by May 11, 2005, in order to meet the
deadline for Senate bills to be presented before the House of
Representatives.


ACTION REQUESTED

Keep your calls coming into your state representatives.

Please give them this message:

"Please vote against Senate Bill 409, which lowers the compulsory
attendance age. This bill is unnecessary. It restricts parental choice
and wastes taxpayer money."

Do not identify yourself as a homeschooler.

You can find information on your representative by using our
Legislative Toolbox at http://www.hslda.org/toolbox/ or call the
Capitol at 217-782-3944.


Thank you for standing with us in the fight for freedom.


Sincerely,


Christopher J. Klicka, Esq.
HSLDA Senior Counsel

-> How many acorns can a chipmunk hold in its cheeks?

We don't know! But we do know that gathering little by little
enables ordinary folks to prepare for hard times. That principle
is behind HSLDA's payment plan: by paying a month at a time,
families can receive an annual HSLDA membership. Meanwhile, they
can feel secure as they homeschool and focus on other priorities
-their children. Don't go nuts trying to pay for membership all at
once. Choose one of our convenient payment plans.
