Pennsylvania--Update on Homeschool Legislation

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Thank you for your many calls and emails yesterday to your state
representatives about the proposed homeschool amendment to Senate Bill
143. We received reports that legislators were getting multiple calls
from homeschoolers who wanted to be rid of an unnecessarily burdensome
law.

Unfortunately, yesterday leaders in the House of Representatives
decided to "lay aside" Senate Bill 143 before it came to the floor for
a final vote. Because of this, Representative Ronald Marsico's
proposed amendment of the homeschool language could not be attached to
the bill. It turns out that other legislators also intended to attach
their own amendments unrelated to homeschooling to Senate Bill 143,
thereby complicating the procedure we intended to follow.

At this point it is unlikely that there will be another opportunity
this legislative session to pass changes to the homeschool law. We
will keep you advised of any further developments.

Again, thank you for your faithfulness in contacting your state
representatives. This helps to lay the groundwork for future action,
even if it's during the next legislative session.

Very truly yours,

Dewitt T. Black, III
HSLDA Senior Counsel
