(CHRISTIANPOST) — The Commonwealth of Virginia is once again considering a bill that would allow school districts to let homeschoolers try out for public school sports teams.

Known as the “Tim Tebow” bill, House Bill 1442 was introduced by Republican Delegate Rob Bell of the 58th District and was passed by the House of Delegates. It will be sent to the State Senate.

“No public school shall become a member of any organization or entity whose purpose is to regulate or govern interscholastic programs that does not deem eligible for participation a student who … is receiving home instruction,” reads HB 1442 in part.
