This bill was NOT taken up on January 6. It will instead be taken up for a floor vote on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 at 10:00 AM.

It appears that at least one Republican is considering the bill. If you are a constituent of first term Republican Representative Rick Ladd of Haverhill, N.H. –he needs to hear from you.

Once again the message is: “The House Education Committee voted with a bipartisan majority 14-6 to recommend that no changes be made to the current homeschool laws in New Hampshire. This is the second year in a row that a New Hampshire Legislative Committee has recommended no changes to the homeschool law. The New Hampshire homeschool law is working and needs no further changes. If passed, HB 368 would make New Hampshire’s homeschool law the most restrictive and burdensome homeschool law in the country. Please vote ITL on HB 368.”

Please visit (or at a minimum call) your representative and ask him or her to vote YES on HB 368 in line with the committee’s recommendation of ITL (Inexpedient to Legislate) To find our who your representative is, click HERE.
