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

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

More calls are needed in order to persuade the Governor Perry to veto
Senate Bill 1440, which will be very harmful to homeschoolers, since
we have many social worker investigations each year.

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 SB 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
through this link: http://hslda.org/elink.asp?ID=6658

Thank you for helping to preserve Texas citizens' freedom!

Sincerely,

Chris Klicka
HSLDA Senior Counsel
