Nebraska--Legislative Wrap-Up

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

The Nebraska Legislature has adjourned for the year. Throughout the
Legislature's 2007 session, Home School Legal Defense Association
tracked four bills that could affect homeschoolers. None of them
became law.

Unfortunately, Legislative Bill 101 was indefinitely postponed at the
beginning of February. This bill would have required that only one
homeschooling parent (instead of the current two) submit the annual
affidavit to the Department of Education. The bill would have eased
the administrative burden for all and most especially for single
parent homeschoolers.

Also, Legislative Bill 571, which would have allowed any two adults to
adopt children, never made it out of the Judiciary Committee for a
vote in the Unicameral.

Overall, this was a good legislative session for Nebraska
homeschoolers. We are grateful for your vigilance and involvement to
support parental rights and to keep homeschooling in Nebraska free
from unreasonable governmental interference.

If you have questions regarding a particular homeschooling legislative
issue, please feel free to contact us.

Sincerely,


Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> Who are the nation's best lobbyists?

We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know
that HSLDA's National Center for Home Education is the only
national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.
