California Senate approves bill regulating gig economy

California Senate approves bill regulating gig economy”

Nancy Skinner and Steven Bradford initially brought to the state Senate in February - would not make individual universities responsible for paying their student-athletes.

The Fair Pay to Play Act, proposed by Sen.

The 29-11 vote late Tuesday sends the bill back to the state Assembly for final approval over strident Republican opposition.

Gov. Newsom has 30 days to veto the bill or sign it into law.

The bill, on the off chance that it progresses toward becoming law, would go live January 1, 2023. The original bill passed in the Senate 31-5, and is expected to pass again. However, amendments sent it back to the Senate where it now awaits approval.

Prior to Monday's vote, Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James and Miami Dolphins quarterback Josh Rosen both urged people to support the bill on social media.

Additionally, politician Bernie Sanders chimed in with his support for the bill.

Universities oppose the bill, and the NCAA has warned the monthly bill could imply California universities would be ineligible for nationwide championships.

It's likewise likely Newsom will be campaigned vigorously by the NCAA and the state's government funded educational systems, huge private universities and athletic gathering authorities.

The California Senate has passed a bill that would give new wage and benefit protections to workers at so-called gig economy companies like Uber and Lyft.

NCAA President Mark Emmert has already lobbied the chairs of two Assembly Committees via letter in June to delay consideration of the legislation and allow the NCAA's current working group, led by Big East Commissioner Val Ackerman, to present potential changes to the NCAA's current legislation regarding the ability of student-athletes to market their name, image and likeness.

Language in the bill specifically restricts California universities from limiting their student-athletes from signing with agents or sponsors.
