A Republican bill that was not inherently evil has passed the Senate. Actually, as you can see from the sponsorship list below, the bill is bipartisan, but the prime sponsor is Republican Senator David Wilson and the majority of the sponsors are Republican.
So how did this bill pass unanimously in the Senate and will likely breeze through the House as well? Because while it concerns a topic, home schooling, that is more salient for conservatives and Republicans, it is also fair.
Senate Bill 106 makes students who attend home schools eligible for the same services for children with disabilities as students who attend private schools in a manner that allows federal funds to pay for the services.
