“Tim Tebow Law” Passes Through Virginia House

Tim Tebow Law passes Virginia House of DelegatesA proposed law, popularly known as the “Tim Tebow Law,” passed through the Virginia House of Delegates last week. HB 947 will now go to the Virginia State Senate for approval.

The bill would allow home school students to participate in public school athletic activities. It is based on a similar Florida law that allowed a certain home schooled teen to excel in high school football, win the Heisman Trophy and eventually become a famed NFL quarterback.

The bill was approved by a 59-39 vote in the House of Delegates and is strongly supported by the governor, who will sign the act if it passes in the senate.

Opponents of the bill say it would create a system of free agency.
