More Action Needed to Preserve the Family!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Thank you for contacting your senator regarding Colorado Senate Bill
130. Your calls have made a difference in raising opposition against
the bill which has been held over several times. However, it appears
that there are still enough votes to pass the Senate. We are asking
you to contact Speaker of the House Frank McNulty and ask him to
assign the bill to a committee that could vote the bill down. Please
take action, as requested below, to oppose this expansion of
government control over the family.

ACTION REQUESTED:

Please contact Speaker of the House Frank McNulty and ask him to
oppose SB 130. Please give the following message in your own words:

"Please assign SB 130 to a committee where you know it will be voted
down. 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."

Representative Frank McNulty (Speaker of the House)
Phone: (303) 866-2346
Via email: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=14142

BACKGROUND:

SB 130 creates the office of early childhood and youth development in
the Department of Human Services (DHS), 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.
