California: Anti-spanking Bill to be Heard in Committee

JOINT LEGISLATIVE UPDATE - April 29, 2008
From: Roy Hanson's Child and Family Protection Association and HSLDA

***** ***** ***** *****
Bill: AB 2943 - Spanking Prohibition
Author: Assembly Member Sally Lieber

Position: Strongly Opposed

Status: To be heard in Assembly Appropriations Committee April 30,
2008.
***** ***** ***** *****

AB 2943 is identical to the final version of Lieber's AB 755, which
was defeated in January. AB 2943 would have had the practical effect
of making criminals out of loving parents who spank with an implement
(i.e. inanimate object, such as a small paddle or ruler) in
California. The result could be jail time for parents and temporary
or permanent loss of their children.

Before AB 2943 (Lieber - D) can become law, it will have to get
majority votes by the:
(1) Assembly Appropriations Committee
(2) Assembly Floor Vote (entire Assembly)
(3) Senate Policy Committee(s)
(4) Senate Appropriations Committee
(5) Senate Floor Vote (entire Senate)
(6) Governor signs the bill

We will continue to do everything we can to stop this bill at each
step of the way. We have already implemented appropriate strategies
for the April 30th Appropriations Committee hearing. Please pray that
AB 2943 will be stopped in the Appropriations Committee, as happened
to AB 755 last year.

For strategic reasons, we are not asking for phone calls at this time.
If AB 2943 is passed by the Appropriations Committee, we will issue
an Alert at the appropriate time asking for calls and letters to the
entire Assembly. Letters to your own Assembly Member continue to be
appropriate. (You can find your Assembly Member's Capitol address and
fax number by entering your 9-digit ZIP code in HSLDA's Legislative
Tool Box at http://www.capwiz.com/hslda , or by calling the office in
your county that handles voter registration.)

-> Who are the nation's best lobbyists?

We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know
that HSLDA's National Center for Home Education is the only
national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.
