  Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said he is planning to introduce a bill Thursday that would require the NCAA to make rule changes regarding college athletes' ability to make money from their name, image and likeness and give the association protection from legal challenges to the new regulations. The NCAA has said it plans to loosen its rules pertaining to athletes' name, image and likeness, with the changes to be voted on at its annual convention in January 2021 and become effective at the start of the 2021-22 academic year.

According to a copy of the bill provided to USA TODAY Sports, Rubio's measure would force the NCAA to establish a new setup no later than June 30, 2021. "The only people on campus that are prohibited from benefiting from their name, their image and their likeness are student-athletes," Rubio said. "And that's just not a sustainable position...given the fact that many of these college athletic endeavors are now multi-billion-dollar industries that are generating a lot of revenue for corporate sponsors and for university programs. "This is not an effort to harm college athletics. Frankly, it's an effort to save it from what I think is going to become completely unmanageable if it's not handled uniformly across the board." - Austin American Statesman
