New Mexico: Legislative Wrap-Up

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

The New Mexico legislature closed March 17, but the governor
immediately called a special session. It was during this special
session that H.B. 603, which would have allowed same-sex couples to
enter into spousal unions, was reintroduced as H.B. 4 and nearly
pushed through.

Thanks to your prayers, calls and emails over the course of both the
regular and special sessions, this legislation was defeated and
traditional marriage survived!

A bill which did pass and which was signed into law was S.B. 1098.
This law will allow homeschoolers to participate in public school
activities by providing funding for the activities, according to the
number of homeschoolers in the district.

S.B. 781 would have given an income tax deduction for homeschoolers,
but this did not pass.

We are grateful for your vigilance and involvement to support parental
rights in New Mexico and keep your ability to homeschool your children
free from unreasonable governmental interference. A special thanks
goes to CAPE of NM and all their indispensable work.

Sincerely,

Christopher J. Klicka
HSLDA Senior Counsel
