Take Action: Online Driver's Education Needs Your Support!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

If being able to take an online driver's education course is important
to you, and as a homeschooler it should be, please take action right
now to tell the Transportation Committee that you want them to vote
"ought to pass" (OTP) on HB 1440. If you are able, please attend the
hearing tomorrow and testify in favor of the bill.

Lobbyists for traditional driver's education programs are expected to
oppose HB 1440 tomorrow because it will take business away from their
driving schools and programs. However, online driver's education has
been approved in a number of other states and is an exceptional
benefit for homeschoolers who otherwise have difficulties obtaining
space in school-sponsored drivers education programs and must
alternatively pay a driving school.

Consider bringing your homeschool student to observe representative
government in action. Encourage them to testify about why the bill is
a good move for all prospective New Hampshire drivers, not just
homeschoolers. Please forward this to your friends who are not
homeschoolers, since creating additional options for parents to
satisfy driver's education requirements is good for all New Hampshire
parents. For more information about why online drivers education is a
good idea visit:

The public hearing in front of the Transportation Committee is
scheduled for tomorrow, January 31 at 2:15 p.m. in Legislative Office
Building (LOB) Room 203. HB 1440 is sponsored by Rep. L. Jones, of
Strafford District 1.


Please attend the public hearing tomorrow, January 31, and contact
members of the House Transportation Committee to encourage them to
support HB 1440. You can give them the following message your own

"Please support HB 1440 which would provide for online driver's
education. This will increase options for all parents. As a
homeschooling parent, I support this bill because some homeschoolers
have had difficulty obtaining driver's education opportunities in
schools. A number of states have provided for this alternative which
has proven to be safe and effective."

You can email the entire committee by using the following email

Please use the subject line "HB 1440 - OTP".

If your legislator is on the committee, please contact him or her
directly as a constituent and identify yourself as such. To find out
who is your representative visit:
