Three U.S Senators unveil discussion draft of bill addressing NIL issues for NCAA athletes


Three U.S. senators are once again trying their hand at regulating the NCAA’s name, image, and likeness policy — or NIL, Yahoo Sports reported.


Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Jerry Moran (R-KS), and Cory Booker (D-NJ) on Thursday released a draft of their proposed legislation. If signed into law, the College Athletes Protection & Compensation Act would establish a new board to oversee NIL policy and provide more transparency for players and universities.


Blumenthal called the draft a “milestone step forward” in a statement to Yahoo Sports, adding that student-athletes “need a level playing field with guarantees of economic opportunities, educational outcomes, and essential health care.”

“Being a college athlete was one of the greatest gifts of my life — it opened doors of opportunity and offered lessons I carry with me to this day,” Booker said in a statement. “But it also opened my eyes to some deep, systemic injustices in the system — a system that, to this day, continues to put profits over athletes. This bipartisan proposal represents a major step forward.”
