A Small Victory

From the HSLDA E-lert Service:

Bill: AB 66 - Work Permits - Effective January 1, 2010,

Author: Assembly Member Joel Anderson

Position: Strongly Supported - worked behind the scenes to get it passed

Status: Signed into Law - A Wonderful Victory!!

We are very grateful to God to be able to report that AB 66 has been signed into law by Governor Schwarzenegger! A big thanks to all who wrote the Governor.

Mary Schofield has worked diligently as our (Family Protection Ministries') special consultant for several years to make it easier for private homeschool high school students to be able to obtain work permits. AB 66 represents an incredible step forward from the past requirements.

For the first time, private school principals or other administrators will be able to issue work permits to their students without having to obtain authorization from the local school superintendent. This provision of AB 66 includes both campus-based private schools and private school satellite programs (PSPs). Another provision of AB 66 clarifies additional options for any private school student to obtain a work permit if the principal or administrator of his private school does not issue work permits.

You will want to read our paper, New Work Permit Law - Effective January 1, 2010, at www.pheofca.org for more on this new work permit law, and to understand some important details.

NO further action is needed on AB 66.

It is amazing, how with one hand this man can do such evil, and on the other, he does this. I don't know what gives, but I'm not complaining.
