Tim Tebow Act sacked in the Senate

A week after it passed out of the Education Committee, the Tim Tebow Act died on the Senate floor. Senate Bill 2329, named for the eponymous home schooled Heisman Trophy winner, would have given home school students the opportunity to participate in public school athletic and extracurricular programs.

The bill’s sponsor, Sen. Joey Fillingane, said that it gave no unfair advantage to home schooled children. But opponents, led by Sen. Hob Bryan, disagreed citing concerns of fairness. With no companion legislation in the House, the measure is officially dead unless the language is added to another bill as an amendment.
