From NY Daily News:  State Senate Committee approves bill that would  allow houses of worship to meet in school buildings

State Sen. Shirley Huntley (D-Queens), who voted in favor of the bill, said churches are just like any other group that rents school space to hold a function.

“I think the churches have every right,” she said. “As long as they’re paying their way, it’s all right with me.”

The problem is, they’re not like any other group:  They are tax exempt.  Secondly, they are not “paying their way”.   That was one of the main problems all along.
