College Student Athlete Compensation Amendment Act of 2021
With this legislation, the District would join 23 states that have facilitated NIL compensation opportunities for student-athletes. While broadly permitting student-athletes to earn compensation for the use of their NIL, the bill would prohibit pay for play, performance, or enrollment at a particular school, as well as compensation for endorsements of restricted products like alcohol, tobacco, gambling, performance enhancing drugs, or adult-only entertainment. Universities would be permitted to require advance disclosure of endorsement deals and agent contracts to ensure compliance with their own rules.
