Rep. Brian Palmer, R-Romeo, introduced a bill that would require public schools to allow home school students to participate in public school extracurricular programs.

House Bill 6251 would allow home school students to participate in any non-academic activity sponsored by or held on the property of their local school district. Such activities include a broad range of after school programs, sports, and certain school-sponsored clubs.

The bill was referred to the House Education Committee.
