Texas Legislature Now Adjourned!
Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,
The Texas Legislature adjourned for the 2012–2013 regular legislative session on May 27, 2013. During this session, HSLDA was on the alert for bills that had the potential to affect homeschooling, your parental rights, and your educational freedoms. Although the legislature is now reconvened for a special session, we don’t anticipate any bills on homeschooling being introduced or debated.
Attorney Tom Sanders, father of homeschool graduates and HSLDA’s local counsel, traveled to Austin on five separate trips to speak with your legislators and give homeschoolers a voice in the legislative process.
This session saw bills ranging from marriage amendments (HJR 77 and 78, SJR 29) to counting homeschoolers in a school district’s daily attendance (HB 1990), all of which never made it to a final vote. Other bills that died before coming to a vote included good bills such as HB 2793 (which would have provided exceptions to Texas’s compulsory school age) and bad bills like SB 303 (which would have given doctors control over a child’s medical care over and beyond the parents’ wishes). Overall, HSLDA believes the legislature’s work this session is good for Texas homeschoolers.
It has been a privilege to serve as your attorney protecting homeschooling freedoms in Texas during the 2013 legislative session! I look forward to keeping you updated when the legislature opens in 2015. Please do not hesitate to contact our office by phone at 540-338-5600 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Standing with you for freedom,
Darren A. Jones
