RICHMOND, Virginia — Both chambers of the Virginia General Assembly have approved legislation to allow home-schooled students to participate in public-school sports.

A longtime goal of home-schoolers, the measure is commonly known as the "Tebow bill," named for Tim Tebow, the former NFL quarterback who was home-schooled and allowed to play football for his local high school. The measure passed the state Senate Monday. A House version passed last week.

A similar measure passed last year, but was vetoed by Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe. The governor said the legislation creates a "double standard" for student athletes.
