Nebraska--Worst Bill in Recent History Introduced
to Restrict Nebraska Homeschoolers' Freedom

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Yesterday, Senator DiAnna Schimek introduced Legislative Bill 1141,
the most threatening bill for Nebraska homeschoolers in recent
history. The bill would severely restrict Nebraska homeschoolers'
freedom by giving the State Department of Education more control over
home education, including annual testing and evaluation requirements
as well as oversight by certified teachers.

HSLDA is working with the Nebraska Christian Home Educators
Association (NCHEA) to defeat this bill.

If you want to contact Senator Schimek about this bill, she can be
reached at (402) 471 2632.

Stay tuned for more information. We will let you know when the bill
is scheduled for further action.

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

"We've been a Liberty Mutual customer for over 12 years. We
called and asked about our HSLDA member discount and they lowered
our premium by approx $95 per year...coincidentally the same
amount as our HSLDA annual membership fee. Thought you'd want to
know!!'"
