HSC Capitol Days is the ultimate hands-on experience in state government and a valuable tool for lobbying the Texas Legislature on current issues of importance. Students and families meet in Austin for activities and training in the legislative process. In the morning session they will learn about current pending legislation important to Texas home schoolers. After, lunch attendees will reconvene, divide into teams, and spend the afternoon at the Texas State Capitol delivering provided packets and lobbying the home school position to legislators and their staff.
