New Hampshire--More Action Needed
to Reduce Reporting: HB 429 Moves to Senate

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Your calls have made a difference. The New Hampshire House of
Representatives voted to pass House bill 429 by a vote of 210-134. The
bill will now be sent to the senate. If passed in the senate and
signed by the governor, HB 429 will empower parents to exempt their
16- and 17-year-old students from compulsory school attendance.

HSLDA would like to thank all those who made the effort to contact
their state representative. Please take action, as requested below, to
help this bill pass through the senate.


Since the bill will soon be referred to the Senate Education
Committee, please contact members of the committee and urge them to
support HB 429.

Although this bill will benefit homeschoolers, it is not specifically
homeschool legislation; therefore, it is not necessary that you
identify yourself as a homeschooler. Please give your legislator the
following message in your own words:

"Please support House Bill 429. Parents, not the government, know what
is best for their children. Parents should have the right to
determine when their children are ready to withdraw from school
attendance. HB 429 empowers parents to make this decision for their
children in accordance with each child's individual needs and
circumstances. Some students may be well served by moving into a
college career early or entering the workforce before they reach the
age of 18. This bill will improve educational outcomes for all
children in New Hampshire by empowering parents to do what they know
is best for their children."

Contact information for members of the Senate Education Committee is

Senator Nancy Stiles - Chair

Senator James Forsythe - Vice Chair

Senator Sharon Carson

Senator Molly Kelly

Senator Russell Prescott

Thank you for your continued support!

Standing with you,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> What do you look like when you get out of bed?

It's hard to look our best all the time. HSLDA works to present
homeschooling in an engaging, dynamic, and informative light to
the public news media.
