THSC is in the process of rolling out our new website. We will combine the THSC PAC website and my blog there with the new website. I recently realized that some who subscribe to my blog on the PAC website may not have been receiving some of my recent blogs on legislative and legal issues because they were posted on the new website.
Please take a minute to look at the new THSC website here and subscribe to the newsletters that you might be interested in so that you can keep up with the battles that we are fighting on behalf of home schooling and parental rights in Texas.
You will see that home schoolers won a huge (although it might be temporary) victory last week in our battle for parental rights in regard to the grandparent access statute in Texas. SB 1148 would have dramatically increased the number of fit parents and children who are subjected to lawsuits by grandparents and at the same time would have reduced the level of evidence required in these lawsuits. Due to the thousands of calls to the Senate Jurisprudence Committee, the author pulled the bill from consideration just hours before the hearing.
While that is wonderful news, it does not fix the problem with the current law. Fixing the problem is something we are trying to do with the Texas Parental Rights Restoration Act (SB 1194 & HB 2547), a bill that we are working hard to pass this session. Thanks for your prayers and support as we fight for parents and children in Texas!
