Montana -- Driver's License Bill Tabled

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

I am pleased to report to you that Montana House bill 215, the bill
prohibiting anyone under 18 years old from obtaining or keeping a
driver's license unless the person was enrolled in school or had
received a high school diploma or GED, was tabled by the House
Education Committee on February 4, 2011. While this bill is not dead,
it is unlikely that it will receive further attention during this
legislative session. We will continue to track its status.

The current compulsory attendance age in Montana is from 7 to 16 or
completion of the eighth grade, whichever is later. House Bill 215 is
a driver's license bill which attempts to meddle with the education
law of the state. It is nothing more than a back-door effort to
increase the compulsory school attendance age.

Many thanks to all of you who contacted members of the House Education
Committee and expressed your opposition to this bill. We especially
appreciate all of the effective lobbying work of the Montana Coalition
of Home Educators.

Very truly yours,

Dewitt T. Black, III
HSLDA Senior Counsel

voice blown back at you?

It's hard to be heard in the midst of a storm. Trying to influence
federal legislation is much like yelling to be heard while
standing in a fierce wind. Yet when 80,000 voices join together,
they become a powerful force that cannot be drowned out.
Join HSLDA to be heard above the tempests that threaten homeschool
freedoms.
