State Sen. Nancy Skinner, a co-author of the bill, said the proposed law would level the playing field for student-athletes against "unfair rules that exploit college athletes and allow the NCAA, universities, TV networks, and corporate sponsors to pocket huge sums".

Universities oppose the bill, and the NCAA has warned the bill could mean California universities would be ineligible for national championships.

He will have thirty (30) days to consider signing the legislation or to exercise his veto authority.

"I just want to say, "NCAA, don't threaten California".

Despite protesters' outrcry, the bill is widely regarded by health advocates as a necessary step to keep vaccination rates high enough to sustain herd immunity, which is threatened in the United States by poor vaccination rates and measles outbreaks. And we have formidable viewership. Once signed, it will go into effect January 1, 2023.

Last week, LA Lakers superstar LeBron James, who did not attend college, expressed his support of the bill before it was provisionally passed. Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green celebrated the bill passing Monday night. Finally, we are making some progress and getting this thing right.

Lawmakers sent Newsom that bill last week. Sen.

California lawmakers have sent Gov. Gavin Newsom changes he demanded as a condition of signing a controversial bill that cracks down on medical exemptions for vaccines.

One of the rulings specifically cited by Stanford is pending with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The bill also stops the NCAA and universities from banning athletes who take the money, according to Sports Illustrated.

NCAA President Mark Emmert has already lobbied the chairs of two Assembly Committees via letter in June to delay consideration of the legislation and allow the NCAA's current working group, led by Big East Commissioner Val Ackerman, to present potential changes to the NCAA's current legislation regarding the ability of student-athletes to market their name, image and likeness.

It is anticipated that those proposals will be forthcoming in a formal report to the NCAA's Board of Governors in October.
The current California legislative session is set to end on Friday. Schools would not be paying athletes, however the athletes could hire an agent and pursue business deals without losing their eligibility. An athlete would not be allowed to have a deal that conflicts with a school contract, but a school contract would not be allowed to restrict an athlete from using their name, image and likeness for a commercial objective when not engaged in official team activities.
