House of Delegates Rejects Governor's Amendments

The Virginia General Assembly has rejected Governor Warner's amendment to HB 675 by a vote of 62-37. Thank you for calling your Delegate and Senator. They clearly heard the message that the Governor's amendment is unacceptable.

Now the Governor will have the second chance to review HB 675 and either veto it, sign it into law or let it become law. Please continue your calls to the Governor urging him to sign the bill.

Please take a moment to call Governor Warner's office and urge him to sign HB 675. Give him the message below in your own words.

"Please sign HB 675 and thereby protect every parent's right to homeschool in Virginia. This will bring Virginia up to speed with the other 49 states that focus on results, not qualifications. The studies all show that homeschooling works, with students scoring above average regardless of the parents' qualifications."
