Thank you to those of you who have continued to pray that the progress of HB16-1164 would be stopped. By the sovereign hand of God, the second reading of this bill has been delayed until the end of next month. This is an answer to our prayers.
On Monday (March 21st), HB16-1164 was scheduled once again for seconding reading in the House. When HB16-1164 came up on the agenda, the House Majority Leader moved that it be laid over until April 25th at the request of the bill sponsor (Representative Dan Pabon).
During the period of announcements and introductions at the end of the session, Representative Dan Pabon requested a moment of personal privilege during which he apologized for the mistakes he made last Thursday which led to his arrest and being charged with driving under the influence and improper registration.
As you continue to pray for God’s intervention with this bill, I would also request that you pray that God would work mightily and graciously in the life of Representative Dan Pabon and his family through the circumstances of last week. Pray that Representative Pabon would experience and know the mercy of God, which we all stand in such need of.
Finally, I urge all of you to make plans to attend Homeschool Day At The Capitol. Registration is FREE and it is critical that we have a large turnout every year so that legislators are reminded that we are a significant force and that they should think twice before passing legislation like HB16-1164.
I look forward to seeing you there!
