Virginia--Victory in the Legislature for Education Tax Credits!

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Thank you! Your calls helped convince the House of Delegates to pass
tax relief and scholarships for homeschool and private school families
by a margin of 56 to 43! Now we must convince the Senate to take
action.

With your help, our tax laws can become more fair.

ACTION

Please contact your senator and ask him or her to support H.B. 1843,
the Public/Private Education Investment Tax Credit. Call your senator
at 1-800-889-0229, the constituent hotline, or use our legislative
toolbox at http://www.hslda.org/toolbox to find your senator's
individual contact information.

You can give them this message:

"We are parents of school-age children who need tax relief. Please
support House Bill 1843, the Public/Private Education Investment Tax
Credit act. It will provide scholarships for tuition, book fees, and
educational fees. We thank you for supporting this measure."

BACKGROUND

Homeschool and private school families pay taxes to support the public
school system, but do not use it. They use their own funds to cover
the cost of an education. This bill is a small way of acknowledging
that we save the state millions of dollars each year.

The bill creates the opportunity for tax credits and scholarships for
private school and homeschool families. It also provides tax credits
to encourage investment in public school building construction and
extra-curricular activities.

The sponsor of the bill is Delegate Chris Saxman. To view the entire
bill, go to: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=3627 .

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!

Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Staff Attorney
