Vermont--Legislative Wrap-Up

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

The Vermont Legislature recently ended its 2007 session. Of the 12
bills that Home School Legal Defense Association monitored, only one
will become law.

Two of the 12 bills directly affected homeschooling--House Bill 9
required the state to give parents a certain amount of money for each
homeschooled child, and House Bill 17 would have allowed homeschoolers
to borrow public school textbooks. Neither of these passed either
branch of the legislature.

Other bills that HSLDA watched include the following:

House Bill 256 and Senate Bill 139--requiring girls going into the 6th
grade to receive the HPV vaccination
House Bill 275 and Senate Bill 80--permitting same sex marriage
House Bill 534--creating a state-funded prekindergarten system for 3-,
4-, and 5-year-olds

House Bills 256 and 275 and Senate Bills 139 and 80 died in
committees.

House Bill 534 has passed both the House and the Senate. It has not
yet been sent to Governor Jim Douglas, but he is expected to sign it
when he receives it.

Thank you for your support of home education and parental rights in
Vermont. If you have any questions regarding this legislative
session, please feel free to contact HSLDA.

Sincerely,


Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney
