Senators Introduce Bipartisan Bill to Regulate NIL in College Sports

Jul 21, 2023

Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), and Cory Booker (D-NJ) have released a draft of the first bipartisan name, image, and likeness bill to be introduced in the Senate.

The 50-page College Athletes Protection & Compensation Act aims to preempt state NIL laws with universal standards and a federal NIL database and enforcement group. It also addresses lifetime scholarships and mandates increased medical care. The bill was first reported on by Yahoo Sports.

On a call with reporters, the senators said they hoped this bill — which includes elements of both more liberal and conservative NIL bills introduced previously — will be able to pass the Senate.
