Maryland--Calls Needed for Fair Access to Special Services

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

Please continue calling members of the Senate Education, Health and
Environmental Affairs committee! The hearing will be tomorrow at 1
p.m. regardless of the weather.

We expect the committee to address S.B. 116 right at 1 p.m. I plan to
be present to testify. If you would like to testify in support of the
bill, you need to put your name on the list outside the committee
hearing room by 12:30. If you wish, Jennifer Levy will put your name
on the list for you. You can contact her at

The hearing will take place in the Miller Senate Office Building, 11
Bladen St., Annapolis, Maryland, in the 2nd Floor West room.


1. Please call the members of the Senate Education, Health, and
Environmental Affairs committee immediately. Your message can be as
simple as, "Please vote in favor of S.B. 116. It will give homeschool
students fair access to special education services they need, like
homeschool students in many other states already do."

Your call will be especially effective if you live in the district of
the committee member you call. Use our legislative toolbox at before calling to see who your senator
is, then check the list below to see if he's on the committee.

2. Come to the hearing on Wednesday and testify in support of the
bill. Your testimony will be especially helpful if you have a special
needs child this bill would benefit. If you think you may testify,
please call Jennifer Levy, Sen. Brochin's aide, at 410-841-3648 in

-> Can you look at the clouds and tell the direction of the wind?

An interesting phenomenon of wind is that it can blow in multiple
directions at the same time, at different heights from the ground.
But usually there is a prevailing wind. HSLDA watches the gusts
and monitors the prevailing trends of change in the legal climate
of home education. So no matter which way the wind is blowing,
we're there to protect your family.
