House File 2098: Parent-Taught Driver Education
Sponsors:
Rep. Brian J. Quirk
Summary:

This bill would allow parents who are providing their children with competent private instruction to also provide driver’s education to their children. Homeschool parents have experienced many difficulties trying to obtain driver’s education through the public schools. In 2004, a parent-taught driver’s ed bill passed both houses of the legislature, but Governor Vilsack vetoed it. S.F. 350 will save taxpayers money by reducing what the government spends on driver’s education.

More importantly, it will save lives. States that already have parent-taught driver’s ed have seen a reduction in traffic deaths among young people who have been taught by their parents.

HSLDA's Position:
Support.
Action Requested:
None at this time
Status:

January 20, 2010 (House) Introduced, referred to Transportation.
January 25, 2010 (House) Subcommittee, Marek, Hagenow, and Hanson.

This bill failed to pass, and is now dead.
