Colorado--Governor Signs Compulsory Attendance Bill

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Senate Bill 73 was signed by Governor Owens on Friday, May 26. This
bill raises the compulsory attendance age for public and private
school students from 16 to 17 years.

The bill does not go into effect until July 2007, so we will have one
more chance to defeat this bill entirely next legislative session.

We are very grateful for Senator Greg Brophy for beginning the
amendment process in the Senate for homeschoolers to be exempted, and
to Governor Bill Owens who made sure homeschoolers were exempted from
this bill in the House.

Thank you to all of you who persistently contacted your
representatives to oppose this bill, and to those of you who
participated in protest at the hearing on this bill. Also, a special
thanks to Treon Goossen, with Concerned Parents of Colorado, who spent
hours tirelessly working on the behalf of homeschoolers in Colorado to
put a stop to this bill.

Most importantly we praise God for without whom our victory would be
completely impossible.

Sincerely,


Chris Klicka
HSLDA Senior Counsel
