Sen. Baker informed us this morning that he plans to run the Tim Tebow home school bill (SB 842) this Wednesday in the Senate Education Committee. I am not sure what time the committee will meet; it will be either 9:00 AM or 10:00 AM.
With just one week left to go in the legislature, nerves are starting to get a little frayed at the Capitol Building. Everybody–both legislators and lobbyists alike–are feeling tired and overloaded as the session comes to a close.
An Alabama senator has filed a ‘Tim Tebow Act’ very similar to the one Sen. Baker (R-Conway) is sponsoring here in Arkansas. As we’ve been reporting, the bills are designed to do one thing: Allow home school students to try out for extracurricular activities at their local public school.
