"Tebow Bill" dies in Virginia Senate [View all]

The bill which would allow home-schooled students to try out and participate in Varsity sports was killed in committee by a vote of 7-8.

"You knew the ground rules when you opted to home-school your kids. You made that choice and that is your choice to make," Senate Democratic Leader Richard L. Saslaw told Steve Henderson of Suffolk, who home schooled two of his children.

"I understand, sir, and what I would say is, we pay our taxes, too, and there's no difficulty in taking our money," Henderson replied.

"Your taxes also purchase an F-22 jet fighter, but that doesn't give you the right to fly it," Saslaw shot back.
