HSLDA--Action Needed to Oppose Law Targeting Homeschoolers

Dear Wyoming Members and Friends of HSLDA:

Homeschoolers may find themselves the target of Senate File 44, which
would impose $1,000 fines for truancy. The bill also calls for
possible jail time of 10 days for parents who fail, neglect, or refuse
to comply with Wyoming's compulsory school attendance laws for their
children.

This bill is harmful to homeschooling families who may find themselves
targeted by aggressive prosecutors and school districts. Additionally,
the bill is unnecessary, as Wyoming already has a satisfactory law
requiring compulsory attendance that allows minimal penalties.

Action Requested:

Your help is needed today! Contact your senators, asking them to vote
no on SF 44 when it is introduced in the Senate.

Find your senator's contact information online:
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=13737
Your message could read: "Senate File 44 would impose excessive fines
and jail time on parents when children miss school. The current laws
for truancy should be enforced rather than such an extreme increase in
fines and jail time. Vote no on sending SF 44 to committee."."

Read the text of the bill here:
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=13738

In our earlier e-lert http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=13739we asked
you to oppose legislation that would have tied compulsory attendance
to a driver's license. Thanks to your calls, we are happy to report
that the bill will NOT be introduced this session. We will be
monitoring the bill in Wyoming's next legislative in case in case it
is re-introduced.

Without your support we could not stand for freedom in Wyoming! If
you or someone you know is not a member of HSLDA, will you consider
taking a moment today to join or recommend us and support our work
defending individual families threatened by government officials and
protecting homeschooling freedom for all? Join now at:
