Tebow bill advances in WV General Assembly

February 12th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

WV Metro News reports the state Senate passed a bill allowing participation in public school athletics by homeschoolers or by students of private schools that don’t offer the sport.

The final score was 24 in favor, nine against and one absent.

Senators also passed a bill allowing the state to assume oversight of big tourism development projects in very small towns.

The bill about athletics participation — which is called the Tim Tebow Act after the football star who was a homeschooler — has been considered by the Legislature each of the past few years.

The bill now goes to the House of Delegates. Gov. Jim Justice, who vetoed the bill a couple of years ago, told MetroNews last week that he would now sign it if it reaches his desk.
