Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) is game for a “Tim Tebow law.”
Appearing on a call-in radio show Tuesday morning on WNIS in Norfolk, McDonnell was asked by a listener if he would support allowing home-schooled children to play public school sports.
“A Tim Tebow law,” McDonnell said, referring to the Denver Broncos quarterback who was home-schooled but allowed to play in his local sports program. “I would support that.”
There will be some bills to that effect before the General Assembly in the session that begins Wednesday, McDonnell said.
“Home-school parents pay taxes like everybody else,” he said. “It’s just fair.”
