Minnesota--Attend Capitol Day to Support Reduction in Regulations

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Minnesota Association of Christian Home Educators (MACHE) invites all
home-educating families to its Home School Day at the Capitol on
Monday, March 2, 2009. MACHE's legislative liaison John Tuma has
worked with members of the Senate and House Education Committee to
introduce a bill that significantly reduces the burdens on homeschool
families and superintendents. Because of the state budget crisis,
there is a desire among policy makers to reduce expenses wherever
possible. Expenses can be saved by reducing the amount of reporting
required by homeschool families.

Families will meet in the Capitol rotunda at 10:30 a.m. There will be
a short program, after which you and your family will be encouraged to
meet with your legislators. The event is free, and no registration is
necessary.

In 25 years, HSLDA has seen that effective capitol lobby days are
important to further the interests of homeschooling. A face-to-face
meeting between a legislator and a homeschooling family gives
legislators the opportunity to see firsthand the positive benefits of
homeschooling. Informed homeschooling constituents who meet with and
demonstrate interest in their legislator's activities provide that
legislator with reasons to vote in favor of maintaining homeschool
freedom. In addition to protecting your freedom, the Home School Day
at the Capitol also provides an opportunity to your children for a
field trip to learn about state government and how laws are made in
Minnesota.

For directions to the capital or to find your legislator please visit:

Thank you for your commitment to maintaining homeschooling freedom in
Minnesota -- it is a privilege to serve you and your family.


Sincerely,


Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

"When I called Liberty to find out what kind of discount we could
get, they told us we would 10% off our car insurance and 5% off
our homeowner's insurance. What we will save is more than double
what it costs to join HSLDA. With one child getting his driver's
license this year, the savings will be a real blessing!"
