1. Your Move, NCAA

Senate Bill 206, better known as the Fair Pay to Play Act, is now the law of the land in the state at the center of the Pac-12 Conference.
California governor Gavin Newsom signed SB206 this morning, allowing college athletes in California to be compensated for the use of their name, image and likeness (i.e., marketing opportunities).
"It’s going to change college sports for the better by having now the interest, finally, of the athletes on par with the interests of the institutions," Newsom said. “Now we’re rebalancing that power arrangement."

>> Situational Awareness: The Act is a game changer in college sports. It makes it illegal for California colleges to deny their student athletes opportunities to gain compensation for the use of their names, images and likenesses. Stated more concisely, the Act guarantees college athletes a right to profit from their identities. The Act also authorizes college athletes to hire agents and other representatives to assist them in negotiating and securing commercial opportunities.
>> From HQWe will consider next steps in California while our members move forward with ongoing efforts to make adjustments to NCAA name, image and likeness rules that are both realistic in modern society and tied to higher education. As more states consider their own specific legislation related to this topic, it is clear that a patchwork of different laws from different states will make unattainable the goal of providing a fair and level playing field for 1,100 campuses and nearly half a million student-athletes nationwide.” - NCAA President Mark Emmert 

>> The Key StatThe law doesn’t allow athletes to be paid directly by the schools; it simply permits them to accept payments from outside businesses for marketing and promotional purposes.

>> Be Smart: The law does not go into effect until January 2023.

>> Worth Noting: Similar legislation is surfacing in other state legislatures, including New York, South Carolina and Florida.
