Sims statement on NCAA Allowing Student-Athlete Compensation Reported by Senator Website

Governor JB Pritzker, Representative Chris Welch and Senator Elgie Sims released the following joint statement after the NCAA announced they will allow student-athletes to be compensated for their names, images and likenesses:

“It’s clear that student-athletes deserve to have rights in a billion-dollar industry they helped build. After advocating for our legislation in Illinois, the NCAA took a welcome – though overdue – step forward to allow students to be compensated for their names and likenesses. We remain committed to being the voice of student-athletes in Illinois and will monitor this decision to ensure it is fully implemented. Today is a victory for student-athletes around the country who are fighting for fairness and equity, and we will continue to fight alongside you.” Oct 29th 2019 http://www.senatorelgiesims.com/news/press-releases/252-sen-sims-issue-joint-statement-on-ncaa-allowing-student-athlete-compensation
