Virginia--Calls Needed Now to Help Pass Tax Credit for Homeschoolers

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

We need your calls September 27-30 to the Virginia Senate during the
upcoming special session.

We urge you to call to support House Bill 1294, introduced by Delegate
Christopher B. Saxman, to provide a tax credit to homeschool, private
school, and public school students in the form of a scholarship for
tuition, books, and educational fees. The bill will allow nonprofit
501(c)3 organizations to establish scholarships for any and all
students. Anyone who gives to the 501(c)3 organization for a
scholarship for the homeschooler can obtain a tax credit.

The scholarships are available for any homeschooler whose parents make
up to $90,000 annually.

It is important that you contact senators on the Finance Committee
September 27-30 while they are in a special session. It is our hope
that the Senate Finance Committee will pass what the House of
Delegates supported in this tax credit bill.

ACTION

Please call and give the following message to members of the finance
committee:

"We are parents of school-age children who need tax relief. Please
support House Bill 1294 which will provide scholarships for tuition,
books, and educational fees. We thank you for supporting this
measure."
