House Committee Sends Bill Banning College Athlete Employment to House Floor

Jun 14, 2024

Congress is one step closer to passing a federal law that would prohibit college athletes from ever being classified as employees.

On Thursday, the House Committee on Education and Labor voted to send the “Protecting Student Athletes’ Economic Freedom Act” for consideration on the House floor as either a standalone bill or a rider to another more comprehensive bill governing college athlete compensation. The vote on the four-page bill broke along party lines: 23 Republicans in favor, 16 Democrats opposed.
