Victory on HB 144 and SF 96--Threats to Family Freedom Defeated...for

Dear Wyoming Members and Friends,

Your calls made a difference thank you! We are pleased to report that
the threat of changes to the compulsory attendance law are dead--for
now. SF 96 died today and HB 144 yesterday on third readings in the
Wyoming Senate and House. SF 96 was sponsored by Senator Rothfuss and
would have increased the compulsory school attendance age to 18. The
bill also would have required all parents to meet with school
officials in order to exempt their 16-18 year olds from school or for
homeschoolers to be exempt from additional reporting requirements. HB
144 would have paved the way for lowering the compulsory attendance
age. We want to thank Senator Leslie Nutting who offered amendments to
SF 96 which would have improved the homeschool law in Wyoming. Please
take a moment to thank her for supporting homeschool freedom at

Thank you for taking prompt action to defend our precious freedom from
unreasonable government interference. We are grateful for the efforts
made by other groups including WyWatch, HOW and Parental Rights of
Wyoming--working together we can be a force for freedom in Wyoming.
Please stay tuned as we continue to monitor other legislation, in
particular changes being proposed to the reporting laws in cases of
suspected abuse and neglect.

Very truly yours,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Attorney
