Thank You for Your Calls: Senate Bill 1148 Pulled from Docket

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

We asked you last week to join homeschoolers across Texas in opposing
Senate Bill 1148, which would have modified state law to permit
grandparents to more easily sue for visitation against the parents'
wishes

We are happy to report that this bill was withdrawn from the docket by
the senator who introduced it and never made it to the committee for a
vote. This decision was a direct result of your phone calls and united
homeschool opposition to this dangerous bill. Thank you for taking the
time to stand against an attack on parental rights!

Although we don't anticipate that Senate Bill 1148 will be
reconsidered in the future, we will be monitoring it throughout the
current legislative session.

In other news, perhaps you've heard of HSLDA's current fight to defend
the German Romeike family from deportation. After the Romeikes faced
fines, losing custody of their children, and the threat of
imprisonment as a homeschooling family in Germany, they moved to the
United States seeking asylum for educational freedom. HSLDA is
currently defending them in the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. Click
here http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=17765 for more information and
to sign the petition to the White House to stop the deportation of the
Romeikes.

Standing with you for Freedom,




Darren A. Jones
HSLDA Staff Attorney
