UHEA Board Member and Legislator Karianne Lisonbee has heard from many people concerned about HJR005 which was recently made public on the State Legislative website. She has spoken with the sponsor and the drafting attorney. She agrees that the current language negatively affects homeschool rights in Utah. However, she is aware that this was not the sponsor’s intent and that he is committed to amending.
UHEA’s Legislative Liaison, Quincy Andelin, will work with Representative Lisonbee, the resolution sponsor, and the drafting attorney to ensure that the new amended language will not infringe on the current rights homeschool families enjoy in Utah.
We will keep you posted! Thank you for your vigilance!
