Attend vote on HB 368 on January 6, 2010

Last year over 1000 homeschoolers showed up at the Capitol to rally against HB 367 and HB 368. In the Democrats thirst for tax dollars and control of New Hampshires' children they try to ram HB 368 down our throats again.

I am sharing the following email I received.

Spelling and grammar errors as well as typos are left as an exercise for my readers.

Hello Home-schoolers!

The House of Representatives will be meeting at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday January 6th at the State House in Concord. On this day your representatives will be voting on House Bill 368.
Have you spoken with each of your representatives?
Do you know how they will be voting on this bill?
Will you be attending?
It is worth contacting your district representatives: phone or mail. Simply ask for them to support the bipartisan (14-6) vote of Inexpedient to Legislate and to not support any amendments.

My representatives were very supportive. Two of them were not going to commit until seeing everything in front of them on that day, but after a few minutes of speaking with them about the education committee vote on November 19th, they agreed to support the ITL recommendation. This was very rewarding to hear! FYI: I did get 3 answering machines and recommend that you have prepared a message that you can leave right on their machine asking for their ITL vote. Also, don't forget to let them know you are their constituent. This is very important to them.

Let's make this New Year a great one for home education! See you on January 6th!
