New Hampshire: Victory HB 368 DEFEATED 324 to 34!

Dear Members and Friends,

Homeschoolers in New Hampshire won a decisive victory for freedom and
liberty as the New Hampshire House of Representatives responded to
your voices to kill HB 368 today by a landslide vote of 324 to 34.

This vote is a testament to the hard work of thousands of homeschool
families from all over New Hampshire. These families have worked over
the past several weeks to educate their representatives about a
possible attempt to amend New Hampshire's homeschool law,
substantially increasing regulations. Homeschoolers and supporters
from all over the country were watching to see what would happen in
New Hampshire, and it is with great delight that we report a
resounding victory.

For the past several years a vocal group of pro-regulation educators,
led by Education Chair Emma Rouse and Representative Judith Day, have
sought to impose unreasonable regulations and additional governmental
intrusion on homeschooling families in New Hampshire. After two
legislative committees studied this issue and recommended no further
regulations, leadership within the Democratic caucus seemed poised to
side with Rouse and Day in attempting to fight the issue on the floor
of the House and submit a draconian amendment to the law. But
homeschoolers defended these freedoms by calling and visiting
legislators and by showing up at the Capitol for two weeks in a row to
show strong opposition to this legislation. Your efforts have secured
a tremendous legislative victory for homeschoolers in New Hampshire.

HSLDA commends the many homeschoolers and organizations like Christian
Home Educators of New Hampshire who coordinated the activities needed
to win this vote. It is a privilege to stand with freedom-loving
people, and HSLDA appreciates your support as we work together to
preserve these important freedoms.

Standing with you,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.

our premium by approx $95 per year...coincidentally the same
amount as our HSLDA annual membership fee. Thought you'd want to
know!!'"
