Nebraska--Governor Dave Heineman Promises to Veto L.B. 1141!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Your calls, emails, and visits to the Capitol have made a difference!
Governor Dave Heineman has promised to veto L.B. 1141, Senator DiAnna
Schimek's homeschool testing bill, if it passes the Senate.

Speaking at NCHEA's (Nebraska Christian Home Educators Association)
Legislative Day on Wednesday to hundreds of homeschoolers, Governor
Heineman said, "If that bill [L.B. 1141] comes across my desk, then I
will veto it."

This is a major step toward defeating this restrictive bill. L.B.
1141 is still scheduled for a hearing on February 26, so your senators
need to continue hearing your thoughts on the legislation, but we
would like to thank Governor Heineman for his support.

-> How long are you in for?

Some families are facing what seems like a lifelong commitment to
homeschooling, with children at both ends of the spectrum -- some
graduating and some just reaching school age. If you're going to
be "in" for a while, consider a lifetime membership with HSLDA.
It's a good deal for families with more than 10 years of
homeschooling ahead.
