Florida Could Be The Next State To Allow College Athletes To Get Paid
Florida could become the next state to allow college athletes to get paid. Gov. Ron DeSantis is backing a bipartisan bill that would allow student-athletes to sign endorsement deals or otherwise profit from their name and likeness. Former Florida college stars like ex-FSU lineman Corey Simon have also expressed support for the bill. A similar bill was signed into law last month in California. The NCAA, meanwhile, has argued that such laws could damage amateur athletics.
