Minnesota: Legislative Wrap-up

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

This year, Home School Legal Defense Association tracked approximately
22 bills in the Minnesota Legislature, ranging from funding universal
preschool to the increase in the education tax credit and a proposed
change in the compulsory school attendance age.

As a result of the work of MACHE and HSLDA, homeschool freedoms were
protected from further governmental intrusion. In May, Governor Tim
Pawlenty vetoed the compulsory school attendance bill, which would
have raised the compulsory school attendance age from 16 to 18.

It is only because of the active involvement of homeschoolers that we
can continue to influence policy and lawmakers to respect our freedom.
HSLDA will continue to watch the Minnesota Legislature with vigilance
and keep you informed.

Thank you for all that you do in support of homeschooling freedom.

Sincerely,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney
