South Dakota--Homeschool Bill Clears House 63 to 4!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Yesterday the South Dakota House of Representatives overwhelmingly put
their stamp of approval on HB 1133, which would abolish the state's
archaic "approval" provisions for homeschoolers. On a 63 to 4 vote,
the bill now heads to committee in the Senate, then the Senate floor.

Thank you for your calls to representatives!

Final enactment of HB 1133 would allow South Dakota to join the 48
other states which treat homeschooling as simply another educational
option by not requiring any form of prior government approval or
permission.

ACTION REQUESTED

None at this time. When the bill officially reaches committee in the
Senate, we will ask for calls in support.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Our sincere appreciation goes to Rep. Lance Russell, chief sponsor of
HB 1133, and the other listed sponsors: Reps. Brunner, Greenfield,
Haggar, Jensen, Kopp, Liss, Betty Olson, Steele, Tulson, Vanneman, and
Venner, and Senators Kraus, Maher, Al Novstrup and Rhoden.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!

Sincerely,

Scott Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel
