that would allow athletes at CA schools to profit off of their name, image and likeness while they are student athletes. Furthermore, it will be illegal (under this bill) for an organization to punish the student athlete for said profit (read: NCAA).

The senator is Nancy Skinner and the bill will be titled (apparently) the "Fair Pay to Play" act. It is behind a pay wall on the Athletic, but if you have membership the article by Marcus Thompson is interesting.
