Tim Tebow bill passes in Alabama House of Representatives

-

The “Tim Tebow Bill” has passed in the Alabama House of Representatives. The bill passed by a vote of 52-43 this week.

What is the Tim Tebow Bill?

It is a piece of legislation that aims to provide homeschooled students the opportunity to play sports and participate in extracurricular activities at their local public schools.

From TimTebowBill.com:

“We are a group of citizens of the great state of Alabama lobbying for our state public education establishment to allow homeschooled students equal access to sports and extracurricular activities. Legislation which would provide this access has been introduced into the Alabama Legislature. This effort began in 2005. Legislation was then submitted in 2006 in the Alabama Senate and House of Representatives.”

Tim Tebow, a former Florida Gators star who is now with the Philadelphia Eagles, played football at Allen D. Nease High School despite being homeschooled.

The bill aims to provide others the same opportunities.
