Ohio legislation protecting religious expression in student extracurricular activities becomes law
COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVG) - Gov. Mike DeWine signed a bill into law on Monday to stop schools and athletic conferences from banning religious apparel during extra-curricilar activities.
The bill was sponsored by state Senator Theresa Gavarone of Bowling Green. In addition to prohibiting any bans on religious apparel, it also removes any requirement for athletes to get advanced approval to wear religious garments.
The bill passed the Ohio House in a unanimous vote earlier this month.
