Nebraska--Legislative Wrap-Up

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

The Nebraska Legislature has adjourned for the year. Throughout the
Legislature's 2007-08 session, Home School Legal Defense Association
tracked three bills that could affect homeschoolers, including
Legislative Bill 1159, relating to truancy procedures, Legislative
Bill 1141, relating to testing requirements for homeschoolers and
Legislative Resolution 369, relating to an interim study of
homeschooling. Portions of L.B. 1159 were merged into another law that
was passed and signed by the governor but should not have an impact on
homeschoolers.

L.B. 1141 was the subject of great debate and activity in this
legislative session. Homeschoolers from all over Nebraska, led by
organizations like NCHEA and others, demonstrated to the Nebraska
Legislature that homeschoolers were unified in their position that
there is no need to change homeschool regulations.

Legislative Resolution 369 received a priority to from the
Legislature, meaning that the homeschool study would receive some
support from the staff of the education committee. HSLDA has learned
from the committee that a public hearing and written report are
unlikely to result from the interim study. The vast amount of
testimony from hundreds of homeschoolers and expert witnesses provides
overwhelming evidence that homeschoolers in Nebraska do not see a need
for change in the homeschool laws or regulations.

We are grateful for your vigilance and involvement to support parental
rights and to keep homeschooling in Nebraska free from unreasonable
governmental interference.

If you have questions regarding a particular homeschooling legislative
issue, please feel free to contact us.

Sincerely,


Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

know!!'"
