Virginia--Calls Needed Now to Help
Pass a Tax Credit for Homeschoolers

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

We need your calls this evening and Tuesday morning (Feb. 10) to the
Virginia House of Delegates.

We urge you to call to support House Bill 1965, introduced by Delegate
Christopher B. Saxman, to provide a tax credit to homeschool, private
school, and public school students in the form of a scholarship for
tuition, books, and educational fees. The bill will allow nonprofit
501(c)3 organizations to establish scholarships for any and all
students. Anyone who gives to the 501(c)3 organization for a
scholarship for the homeschooler can obtain a tax credit.

The scholarships are available for any homeschooler whose parents make
up to $90,000 per year.

A similar law was successfully enacted in Arizona and has been used to
help many students over the last seven years.

It is important that you contact representatives Tuesday morning.

It is our hope that the House of Delegates will pass this tax credit
bill. You may view the bill at


Please call your Virginia delegate and give the following message:

"We are parents of school-age children who need tax relief. Please
support House Bill 1965, which will provide scholarships for tuition,
books, and educational fees. We thank you for supporting this

To find your delegate, go to .

Your action will determine the success of this tax credit measure that
will provide significant tax relief for homeschoolers.

-> Will your children's inheritance retain its value?

If you pass on a legacy of freedom, your children and their
children's children will thank you. But freedom is never secure;
it must always be guarded. Membership with HSLDA is an investment
in the future that can be passed on to future generations of
families wanting to teach their children at home.
