Vote on HCR 11 as Early as Thursday
Dear Michigan Members and Friends,
Your calls are working, and the Senate is getting the message. But your calls are still needed to defeat or amend HCR 11—the first step in imposing Common Core on the people of Michigan.
HCR 11 could be considered by the Senate Government Operations Committee as early as this Thursday. Thankfully, because of your calls, many senators are showing signs of opposition to HCR 11. But your calls are still needed to strengthen their resolve to oppose or amend the resolution. HCR 11 would allow the state Department of Education to spend money implementing Common Core Standards, including federally controlled SMARTER tests.
Please call the Government Operations Committee members and your own senator and ask them to oppose HCR 11 and the SMARTER test requirements.
Please contact your own senator and the members of the Senate Government Operations Committee and give them the following message in your own words:
“Please vote to oppose HCR 11 or amend it to remove the requirement for federally controlled SMARTER tests. These tests facilitate the increasing federalization of education with the potential to infringe upon the liberty of all parents to direct the education of their children. HCR 11 undermines local control of education through the SMARTER testing requirement. Please vote to amend HCR 11 or oppose the bill if it is not amended.”
You can find the contact information for your own senator online.
Here is the contact information for the members of the Government Operations Committee:
Randy Richardville (Committee Chair)
Dave Hildenbrand (Majority Vice Chair)
Arlan B. Meekhof
Gretchen Whitmer (Minority Vice Chair)
Tupac A. Hunter

Can You Look at the Clouds and Tell the Direction of the Wind?
An interesting phenomenon of wind is that it can blow in multiple directions at the same time, at different heights from the ground. But usually there is a prevailing wind. HSLDA watches the gusts and monitors the prevailing trends of change in the legal climate of home education. So no matter which way the wind is blowing, we’re there to protect your family.
