NCAA Athlete Pay

College athletes in Pennsylvania would be able to receive compensation for their name, image and likeness in proposed legislation associated with the new state budget package. reports that a document obtained from the state House Republican Appropriations Committee and tied to the state’s budget negotiations contains language saying a college student athlete “may earn compensation” for their “name, image or likeness.”

Athletic scholarships couldn’t be reduced or revoked because of such compensation.

Student-athletes would be barred from agreements with certain industries.

Six other states have similar legislation going into effect in July and more are considering the idea.
