Movement for College Athlete Compensation Gains Momentum

Inside Higher Education is reporting on the growing momentum of the movement for college athletes to receive compensation. Earlier this week, California enacted a law that permits college athletes to receive compensation via endorsements (read Vox's coverage of the new California law here). Inside Higher Education reports that "Several state legislators -- including in Florida, Minnesota, Nevada, Pennsylvania and South Carolina -- have announced they plan to introduce legislation similar to the California bill, and Kevin Parker, a state senator from New York, introduced a bill in September that is currently in committee."

Inside Higher Education also reports that "U.S. representative Anthony Gonzalez, a Republican from Ohio, announced a plan to introduce a federal bill similar to the California legislation on the House floor, which could alter how the NCAA responds to the California law."
