Bill Malone and Albert Ellison operate the EBA site. They are lobbying for this bill which, if it passes, would allow out-of-state licensed, distance-educated lawyers to take the Texas Bar Exam. The connection to home education? Bill homeschools his children. Albert was homeschooled for a portion of his high school education. Both are attorneys.
As of this writing, HB 826 had been favorably reported out of committee in the House and is now in the Calendars Committee waiting scheduling for floor debate.
