New Hampshire: Take Action to Protect Your Family from False
Allegations!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

House Bill 506 would create a misdemeanor if a person knowingly makes
a false allegation of child abuse or neglect. The bill, sponsored by
Representative Paul Ingbretson, protects families from malicious
reports of child abuse or neglect. By making such reports
misdemeanors punishable by no less than 6 months probation and one
year mandatory counseling, for the first offense, and 6 months
imprisonment for subsequent offenses, people will be less likely to
make reports that are malicious or false.

HB 506 has been referred to the Children and Family Law Committee, and
there is a public hearing on Thursday, March 3, 2011, at 11:30 a.m. in
Legislative Office Building (LOB) 206.

Please take action, as requested below, to support this change that
would help support family integrity and freedom in New Hampshire.

ACTION REQUESTED

1) If you are able, attend the hearing on Thursday, March 3, and
consider testifying. The hearing will be at 11:30 a.m. in LOB 206.

2) Please contact members of the House Children and Family Law
Committee and urge them to support HB 506. Please convey the following
message, but be sure to use your own words:

"Please support HB 506. This bill would establish a penalty for those
who make malicious false allegations against parents. It would protect
parental rights and family integrity without impairing the current
protections that are in place for children."

Because this bill affects all parents with children, you do not need
to identify yourself as a homeschooler.

your last name begins with M-Z, contact representatives 10-17. Contact
