New Hampshire--Need Your Attendance
at Hearing to Stop Restrictive Homeschool Bill!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Homeschooling freedom will be lost if S.B. 337 is passed into law! We
need your help tomorrow to attend the committee hearing to stop this
restrictive bill.

Senate Bill 337, which increases government control over New Hampshire
homeschoolers, will be considered before the House Education Committee
at 10:30 a.m., in Legislative Office Building 207.

We need as many people as possible to attend the hearing and sign in
as opposing S.B. 337. We also encourage you to submit a few
paragraphs of written testimony to the House Education Committee
and/or testify at the hearing. Your main message should be: Nothing
is broken. What are we trying to fix? Homeschooling works--and give
anecdotal evidence from your family's experience.

For more help with your testimony, see HSLDA's S.B. 337 talking points
at .

HSLDA Attorney Mike Donnelly will be attending the hearing to testify
in opposition to the legislation.

Remember, New Hampshire Governor John Lynch has promised to sign any
legislation sponsored by Senator Iris Estabrook (this includes S.B.
337), so it is vital that we stop this bill in committee tomorrow!


1. Attend the House Education Committee hearing on S.B. 337 on
Wednesday, April 2, at 10:30 a.m., in Legislative Office Building 207.
When you arrive, please sign up to oppose the bill. Signing in does
not obligate you to testify; however, if you would like to testify,
you may.

2. Call or email the members of the House Education Committee, and ask
them to vote SB 337 "Inexpedient to Legislate."

If your last name begins with the letter A - E, please call
representatives 1 - 4; if it begins with F - J, call 5 - 8; if K - O,
call 9 - 12; if P - T, 13 - 16; if U - Z, 17 - 20.
