Texas--Calls Needed To Defeat Bill
That Takes Away Constitutional Rights

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

In a special session this past weekend, both houses of the Texas
Legislature voted to pass Senate Bill 1440, which allows state
officials to bypass constitutional processes when conducting an
investigation of child abuse or neglect. If it passes, it would give
a court the authority to order access to a child and his or her
records on the basis of an affidavit and without prior notice or a
hearing.

The bill is now on Governor Rick Perry's desk awaiting a signature,
and he needs to hear that Texas residents do not want S.B. 1440 to
become law!

ACTION REQUESTED

Call Governor Perry's office at 800-252-9600, and ask him to veto
Senate Bill 1440 because it violates Texas citizens' constitutional
rights.

You can also register your opinion online at the Governor's website
at: http://governor.state.tx.us/contact/

Thank you for helping to preserve Texas citizens' freedom!


Sincerely,

Chris Klicka
HSLDA Senior Counsel

We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know
that HSLDA's Federal Relations Department is the only
national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.
