    I don't like the out of state part, but I can see some logic behind it. The 20 mile rule is silly and should not pass. Let family's decide what is too far. I don't think that 20 miles would get all of Jefferson County, let alone the other parts of the Louisville area that are served by Trinity, x, SHA, Assumption, KCD, LCA, etc.

    I think the way I read it the 20 mile rule ONLY applies to NON public schools. But I think that theguru is right that would probably works against schools like Eastern and Ballard to an extent because then X, and T would more heavily hang out at Lyndon and Middletown optimist leagues to fill the slots instead of going across the bridge and out in the counties to fill the stable, leaving even less local horses to pull the sled for the Bruins and Eagles.

    Correct. Public schools are limited to their natural boundaries. For those public schools without natural boundaries, they are limited to their school district. I assume schools like Manual are in the Louisville city district so any kid in that district could still go there and play sports without violating the proposed wording.
