A New Virginia General Assembly Session Begins

The Virginia General Assembly opened its 2012 session on Wednesday, January 11, and VaHomeschoolers’ government affairs team has been watching the action very closely.  Our team of volunteer legislative monitors has been scouring over every bill that could have relevance to homeschooling and related topics (such as curfews, truancy, driver education, and so on).  Our full-time lobbyist, Scott Price, has been meeting with legislators to let them know about our interest in or concerns with their bills and to gather additional information.

Currently, we are following bills related to homeschooler access to public school sports (and more), a homeschool expenses tax credit, clarification of the home education statute curriculum description requirement, driver licensing, and a homestead exemption for homeschooling materials.

To read more about these bills and how they could affect your homeschooling, see  the full January 16, 2012 VaHomeschoolers Legislative Report.
