Michigan: Update on Homeschool Registration Bill

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Thank you for your calls and emails! They are causing quite a stir in
the legislature.

The office of one of H.B. 59132's co-sponsors said: "there is no other
group in Lansing that the representative and his colleagues have found
more passionate... than homeschoolers (we're hearing from
homeschoolers who don't even live in our district!)." One report has
indicated that H.B. 5912 will likely never get out of committee this
session and would thus have to be reintroduced next session.

Other co-sponsors have indicated to their callers that they are
wavering on whether to continue their support. However, keep your
calls coming so that this bill will not "see the light of day." We
hope the affect of these calls will make it clear to the sponsoring
representatives that we do not want this bill being introduced next
year, either.

ACTION REQUESTED

Please stop calling Representative Joel Sheltrown. He has withdrawn
his sponsorship due to the phone calls.

Please note the correction for the phone number and email for Rep.
Kathleen Law. We had the wrong information in the last email. The
correct information for Rep. Kathleen Law is 517-373-0588,
kathleenlaw@house.mi.gov.

Thank you for your continued calls and emails.
