Oregon: Update on Compulsory Attendance Bill

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Thanks to your calls and prayers, Senate Bill 392 was voted down on
Monday by a vote of 32 to 23.

However, Representative Arnie Roblan from the 9th District changed his
vote from yes to no and requested a reconsideration of the bill. This
is a tactic used to try to save a bill from defeat. On Wednesday the
House voted 32 to 26 to reconsider Senate Bill 392 and sent the bill
to the Committee on Elections, Ethics and Rules. The Committee could
try to amend the bill and bring it to the floor again.

At this time we are not requesting any action from you. However,
HSLDA, OCEANetwork, and OHEN are closely monitoring the bill along
with several other key individuals. Should any action be needed we
will contact you immediately. While the Oregon Legislature has no set
ending date, the average general session lasts approximately six
months. The session began this year on January 8.

Thank you for your diligent effort this year in fighting this bill.
Please continue to pray that this victory would be a lasting one and
that this bill would not be able to be saved. Senate Bill 392 is more
of a parental rights battle to determine when a child should go to
school than solely a homeschool issue.

If you are not yet a member of HSLDA and would like to help us fight
for greater parental rights and homeschool freedom in Oregon please

Thank you for your part in fighting for freedom in Oregon. "Eternal
vigilance is the price of liberty."

Sincerely,

Thomas J. Schmidt
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> 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.
