Sports Access Bill Succeeds on House Floor

HB 1442, Del. Rob Bell’s homeschool sports access bill, passed by a vote of 56-43 on the floor of the House of Delegates yesterday. Check to see how your delegate voted. The bill will “cross over” to the Senate next, where it will be debated in the Senate Education and Health Committee. If you haven’t contacted your senator yet to request him or her to “Please Vote YES on HB 1442!” now is the time. As soon as we know when the next hearing will be, we will let you know. It will be very important to have homeschoolers in attendance.
