Quick update

Word came through today that Arkansas House Bill 2144 has been referred to an interim study. I won't presume to know all that entails, but my understanding is that it will remain a pending bill, be considered, its potential effects and usefulness evaluated, and then will possibly return in the 2011 session of the Arkansas State Legislature. So, for now, the state government is going to leave homeschoolers alone. Which is nice of them. There are adequate laws in existence in the state to address what Representative Cook was concerned about. Hopefully this will be seen in the interim study.

And I'm less upset with Congressman Mike Ross than I was. True, he voted for a bailout/stimulus/social reorganization plan without really reading all of it. But he also signed on to a letter sent to Attorney General Holder expressing that there is no need to meddle with the American people's 2nd Amendment rights. So, Congressman Ross, you're off the 'ain't no way I'll vote for you ever list' and on the 'looking for a reason to vote for you list.' That unborn baby humans are still human is probably going to be the deciding factor.

    I was a little anxious over that whole thing.
