Missouri--KC "Committee Substitute" Totally Unacceptable

Dear HSLDA Friends and Members,

This morning I reviewed a new draft of the Kansas City daytime curfew
ordinance called "Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 120180." It
is totally unacceptable. It makes it a crime for a young person to be
in public without their parent when the public schools are in session.

It's a daytime curfew, pure and simple--without actually using the
word "curfew."

No amount of exceptions or exclusions--there are 13!--can cure the
fatal flaw of the "Committee Substitute." Our kids must not be put in
a position where they will be investigated as if they were suspected
criminals just because they are enjoying God's sunshine in public.
It's unacceptable to pass a law that makes our kids prove they are
innocent. The only reason this ordinance requires so many exceptions
is that it is fundamentally in error in the first place.

When you attend the committee meeting this morning, please urge the
committee to reject the "Committee Substitute" and put one of
Councilman Sharp's versions up for consideration.

Scott A. Woodruff, Esq.,
Senior Counsel, Home School Legal Defense Association

-> Who are the nation's best lobbyists?

We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know
that HSLDA's Federal Relations Department is the only
national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.
