‘Tebow bill’ gone for session after failing to advance in Va. Senate committee

February 14, 2013

A bill that would have allowed home-schooled students in Virginia to play public school sports is gone for the session after dying in a Senate Committee.

The Committee on Education and Health on Thursday voted 7 to 8 not to advance the legislation known as the Tebow bill, named after the New York Jets quarterback who was home-schooled in Florida but allowed to play football at his local high school.

The bill cleared the House last month by a 53-to-46 vote. A similar measure that cleared the House last year also died in a Senate committee.
