California Bill Passes Allowing College Athletes to Profit from Endorsements

  • The California Assembly passed a bill 66-0 on Monday that would allow college athletes to hire agents and get paid for endorsements.  The bill also stops the NCAA and universities from banning athletes who take the money, according to Sports Illustrated.

  • This could be a big showdown for California and the NCAA.  Several universities and the NCAA oppose the bill. The NCAA has already warned that California could lose some national championship games if the bill is passed in a final vote this Friday.
