AUSTIN, Texas — The University Interscholastic League Legislative Council met Tuesday to make decisions on proposed rule changes in UIL academics, athletics, music and policy.

The Legislative Council approved a rule to allow UIL member schools to permit the live webcast of regular season football games on Friday night. This does not apply to linear broadcasts. They also approved the modification of rules to comply with House Bill 547, which pertains to the participation of non-enrolled students (Homeschool) in UIL activities if allowed by the local school district.

The council passed a proposal to modify the start dates for both baseball and softball. They also passed a proposal to clarify the authority of the UIL State Executive Committee when an assault of a sports official occurs.

Additionally, the Council also placed a proposal to allow four playoff qualifiers for 1A Basketball up for a referendum ballot.
