Nevada: Homeschool Freedom Bill Voted in Favor of Unanimously!

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

We received an update from Nevada homeschool leaders Frank Schnorbus
and Barbara Dragon who attended the Nevada Senate Human Resources and
Education Committee on Wednesday evening. Although testimony isn't
usually taken during a work session, Chairman Maurice E. Washington
requested that Frank and Barbara give information about the amendments
to the senators. Dr. Keith Rheault, State Superintendent of Public
Instruction, was then asked to testify to his support of the bill and
he then informed the senators that he had withdrawn the fiscal note
from the bill!

The vote commended, Senator Joseph J. Heck made the motion in favor of
the bill and was seconded by Senator Valerie Wiener. The vote was
unanimous!

Thank you for your emails and phone calls! Without the support of our
members, the bill may not have passed.

S.B. 404 now goes to the full Senate for a vote, where we hope it will
be voted on favorably within the next couple of weeks. If it passes,
it will go to the Assembly. Frank and Barbara have already garnered
support for the bill from some of the legislators on both sides of the
aisle, but nothing is a guarantee.

We will continue to keep sending updates on the various stages of the
bill.

ACTION REQUESTED:

It is no longer necessary to contact the Human Resources and Education
Committee Senators, unless you want to thank them.

BACKGROUND:

Sincerely,
