New Mexico: Defeat of Domestic Partnership Bill

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Thank you for your perseverance! The many calls the committee received
made a difference.

H.B. 9, the domestic partnership bill was finally defeated when
Senator Richard C. Martinez changed his position to vote with the five
other senators opposing the bill. As a result, H.B. 9 was tabled
(which kills it for the year) in the Senate Judiciary Committee by a
6-4 vote.

This was a long, hard fight, but righteousness won in the end. This is
the second year in a row that the bill was defeated when all
expectation were that it would pass.

We especially are thankful to CAPE-NM for their hard work to defeat
this bill. We urge any of you who are not members to join CAPE-NM to
support their efforts for New Mexico homeschoolers. You can visit
their website at http://www.cape-nm.org/.

We also thank all of you who attended the CAPE-NM capitol day this
past week. Over 350 homeschoolers attended the event and expressed
their opposition to H.B. 9 while promoting the cause of homeschooling
with the legislature. Annual days at the capitol are a tremendous way
to remind the legislatures that the homeschoolers are "alive and well"
and that they care about freedom.

Thank you again for your involvement in protecting liberty in New
Mexico.

Sincerely,

Christopher J. Klicka
HSLDA Senior Counsel

-> 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.
