Other states are also looking to implement a similar law, with SC and NY proposing laws that are actually more aggressive than the Fair Pay to Play Act.

On the latest AP Top 25 College Football Podcast presented by Regions Bank, Andy Staples joins AP's Ralph Russo to discuss the ramifications of the Fair Pay to Play Act. This bill allows student-athletes in the state of California to profit from endorsements and the use of their image without losing their scholarship. S.B.

Although there is nothing imminent that suggests such a law is coming to Kansas, the California law, signed by the governor earlier this week and set to go into effect in 2023, has kickstarted the conversation about California's move could mean for college athletics in general. He added that the bill is a necessary step in stopping the exploitation of student-athletes, many of whom come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Also, the players will get a taste of the money that they will make if and when they become professional athletes.

In response to California's new law, the NCAA released a statement saying the organization "agrees changes are needed to continue to support student-athletes, but improvement needs to happen on a national level through the NCAA's rule-making process".

For years, everyone was able to profit off of the college athlete's blood, sweat, and tears, except for the student-athletes themselves.

Gov. Tim Walz on Tuesday said he is "certainly willing to look at" legislation that would allow college athletes in Minnesota to hire agents and make money off endorsements, just as a newly signed law in California would.

Somalia: US training base hit in jihadist attack
In an April statement AFRICOM said it had killed more than 800 people in 110 air strikes in Somalia since April 2017. The attack hit a part of the base that houses US special forces, who supervise Somali forces on operations, he said.

Proponents said the statute addresses a fundamental inequity in barring financial compensation for college athletes when academic institutions generate billions of dollars a year from student sports, even as a majority of their athletes live at or below the poverty level. With the NCAA banking serious cash, many people feel the title of student-athlete is hypocritical, but I have worked with student-athletes who were true scholars and took their coursework seriously. Gonzalez said he has examined the issue with his staff in the past, but their conversation "kicked into gear" after California passed its new law Monday. If they are only focused on pursuing money, they will never be satisfied, as an adage in Ecclesiastes 5:10 teaches.

The bill would allow thousands of students at some of the country's biggest college sports programs to cash in on their athletic achievements for the first time.

"Is there anything that you would like to say to Mark Emmert, the President of the NCAA?".

"I think it's especially relevant to note that this whole enterprise is entirely professional, except the players are not paid", Nevius told NBC News. As the movement gains traction, it's likely that more states will follow. If athletes in only a handful of states can reap the benefits of the Fair Pay to Play Act, it will be seen as a recruiting advantage for schools in those states.

"There's more than enough for them to share", said New York State Senator Kevin Parker.
