New Hampshire--More Calls Needed to Defend
Parents from Increased Governmental Intrusion

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

Last week, the New Hampshire House voted to pass Senate Bill 18 by a
slim margin of 183 to 170. The bill then went to the House Finance
Committee for review. It will likely return to the full House for
another vote next Wednesday, May 30.

Homeschool leaders in New Hampshire have analyzed last week's vote and
identified 21 representatives who either did not vote or who might be
persuaded to change their vote. If 13 of these representatives can be
persuaded to show up next week and vote "no," then Senate Bill 18 can
still be defeated.

Despite amended language, Senate Bill 18 will remove authority from
parents and assign it to school bureaucrats. Furthermore, the bill
gives the Department of Education the power to create additional home
education regulations.

Please take a moment to contact the representatives listed below and
ask them to either change their vote or to show up next Wednesday to
vote against Senate Bill 18. If you live in the district of one of
these legislators, please make it a priority to contact him or her. If
not, please follow the suggested rule of contact (below) and attempt
to communicate with as many representatives as possible.

If your last name begins with the letter A-I, please contact members
1-7; if J-T, contact members 7-14; if U-Z, contact members 15-21.

The following representatives were not present for last week's vote:
