Iowa--Call Sen. Rielly for Parent-taught Driver's Ed

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

A bill that would give homeschool parents the right to teach driver's
education to their own children needs your help right away!

The bill, SF 146, was assigned to a subcommittee chaired by Senator
Jeff Danielson. But Sen. Danielson refuses to allow the bill to come
up for a hearing. He wants to kill the bill.

Senator Tom Rielly has the power to reassign the bill to a
subcommittee chaired by Senator Dandekar, who supports the bill, and
would allow a hearing.


If you live in Senator Tom Rielly's district (D-38, which includes a
large area between Des Moines and Iowa City), please:

1. Seek him out in your district by attending his legislative forums
or calling on him ( in the

2. Contact him at the Capitol by e-mail (
or phone (515-281-3371).

3. Email the Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators (NICHE) and let
them know about your contact at .

Your message can be as simple as:

"Driver education remains the only subject that homeschooling parents
are not allowed to teach their children. Evidence shows parent-taught
driver education is safer and cheaper for both families and the
public. This legislation is a top priority for homeschool parents in
your district. Please do not kill SF 146 without giving it a fair
chance. Please reassign the bill to a subcommittee chaired by Senator
Dandekar, the sponsor of the bill, and support the bill with your

NICHE and HSLDA are working hard to give homeschool families the
blessing of being able to teach driver education to their own
children. It will save families money, and studies show it produces
drivers as safe or safer than other programs. It is a great
additional way for a parent to participate in the child's transition
from childhood to adulthood.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!
