Texas: Stop Discrimination Against Students Using Parent-Taught Driver
Ed Programs

April 9, 2007

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

The House Transportation Committee, chaired by Rep. Mike Krusee, will
hear testimony Tuesday, April 10, on HB 2628 by Rep. Tony Goolsby.
This bill would allow driving schools to enable their students to
avoid the highway sign and traffic law parts of the written test at a
Driver License office by stating that the applicant has already passed
the test under the supervision of the driving school.

The bill discriminates against parent-taught driver education courses
by not allowing those students to receive the same treatment.
Parent-taught driver education students currently receive the same
waiver for the road test as do students of driving schools.

REQUESTED ACTION
Please call as many members of the House Transportation Committee as
you can and ask them to vote against HB 2628 unless it is amended to
allow equal treatment for students using parent-taught driver
education programs. Give some of these talking points as reasons for
your position.

Members of the House Transportation Committee:
Chair Mike Krusee, (512) 463-0670
Vice Chair Larry Phillips, (512) 463-0297
Linda Harper-Brown, (512) 463-0641
Joe Deshotel, (512) 463-0662
Pat Haggerty, (512) 463-0728
Patricia Harless, (512) 463-0496
Fred Hill, (512) 463-0486
Nathan Macias, (512) 463-0325
Jim Murphy, (512) 463-0514

Sincerely,

Christopher J. Klicka
Senior Counsel

"When I called Liberty to find out what kind of discount we could
get, they told us we would 10% off our car insurance and 5% off
our homeowner's insurance. What we will save is more than double
what it costs to join HSLDA. With one child getting his driver's
license this year, the savings will be a real blessing!"
