CA Bill Passes Allowing College Athletes to Profit from Endorsements

Gov. Gavin Newsom Signs Bill Limiting California Vaccine Medical Exemptions, Despite Capitol Protests

Nancy Skinner speaks on the floor of the Senate in Sacramento, Calif. However, the Senate approved its version of the bill by a 31-5 margin, and the bill's basic intent remains unchanged.

About 200 opponents earlier filled the hallway in front of the governor's office, asking Newsom to veto both vaccine bills. He also has the option to ignore the legislation and take no action, which would allow the bill to become law.

It's likewise likely Newsom will be campaigned vigorously by the NCAA and the state's government funded educational systems, huge private universities and athletic gathering authorities.

Despite protesters' outrcry, the bill is widely regarded by health advocates as a necessary step to keep vaccination rates high enough to sustain herd immunity, which is threatened in the USA by poor vaccination rates and measles outbreaks. "Because we have formidable schools".

That measure carries a deal Pan and Newsom reached last week that would grandfather in all medical exemptions prior to January 1, when SB 276 takes effect.

As things stand now, college athletes must sign away their name, image and likeness rights to their schools when they play. And it would halt universities and the NCAA from banning athletes who choose the dollars. In the meantime, it is expected to face heavy opposition from the NCAA and its California schools.

A few of the bill's backers, such as Bernie Sanders and National Basketball Association star LeBron James, took to Twitter to urge residents and state representatives to support the legislation.

Draymond Green wants to pay the players. The bill awaits approval from State Senate and a signature from Gov. Gavin Newsom, according to the CBSSports.

The State of California is getting closer to letting college athletes make money.

One of the rulings specifically cited by Stanford is pending with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The proposal, also known as the Fair Pay to Play Act, would prohibit California colleges and universities from enforcing NCAA rules preventing student-athletes from being compensated for the use of their names, images and likenesses and from endorsements and sponsorships.

In a June letter, NCAA President Mark Emmert had asked California legislators to defer thought of the bill while a NCAA working gathering investigation of unprofessional quality arrangements is progressing.

The NCAA panel is scheduled to make a final report to the association's board of governors in October.

The California Senate need to get a last vote on the invoice by Friday.

The amendments added by the Assembly include provisions created to address potential conflicts between prospective athlete deals and school deals, such as shoe-and-apparel contracts.
