Tim Tebow Bill Allowing Home Schooled Students to Take Part in Public School Activities Dies in the House

According to MetroNews, the bill that would allow homeschoolers to play sports at public schools in West Virginia has been dealt a major setback. The House Education Committee Wednesday rejected HB 4007 by a 16-9 vote.
 
A similar bill is still under consideration in the Senate. SB 130 has passed the Senate Education Committee and is now in Finance. However, the overwhelming failure in the House committee significantly diminishes chances for passage.
 
That’s a change from last year when the so-called Tim Tebow bill cleared both chambers, but was vetoed without comment by Governor Jim Justice, who coaches the Greenbrier East Girls High School basketball team.

The bill was opposed by the West Virginia Secondary Schools Activities Commission, which governs high school sports in the state.
