Action Needed to Preserve the Family!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Your calls are making a difference. Senate Bill 130 has been laid over
again by the Colorado Senate. The bill is currently scheduled for a
second reading this Friday, March 16. If you have not already done so,
please contact your state senator and ask him or her to oppose this
bill.

SB 130 creates the office of early childhood and youth development in
the Department of Human Services, which would increase government
control over early learning, child health, child mental health, and
family support and parent education. Efforts to increase government
control over early childhood education are often a precursor to
expanding the compulsory school attendance age. HSLDA opposes this
bill because of its excessive government interference into the family.

ACTION REQUESTED

Please contact your state senator by this Friday, March 16, and ask
him or her to oppose SB 130. You can find your state senator's name
and contact information here: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=14050

Please give the following message in your own words:

"Please oppose SB 130. This bill increases government control over
families. Parents--not the government--know what's best for their
families. I oppose increasing the Department of Human Services'
authority over early learning, child health, child mental health, and
family support and parent education."

We greatly value you and your support--it is a privilege to serve you!
