State Legislatures Are In Attack Mode Against the NCAA’s NIL Rules

Jun 12, 2023

For the past two years, states have been crafting various name, image, and likeness laws that would give their states a competitive edge in the NIL landscape.

But there’s something different about the latest batch of bills and amendments: They’re making it illegal for the NCAA to enforce some of its own NIL rules.

The main regulation legislatures are attacking is one published in 2022 NCAA documents, which says athletic department employees can’t organize or “facilitate” specific deals for athletes. If the NCAA tries to punish schools for their involvement in deals, it could be subject to litigation.
