Uniform College Student Athlete Name, Image, or Likeness Act. There was no public testimony on this agenda item. Commissioners observed that if the commission does not move forward with this act then it is likely that there will be two or three bills regarding this subject matter introduced this next session. The uniform act is probably a better approach and better thought through than any potential new bills.
Commission consensus was to push forward with the act to get it in front of the public and to work with colleges and universities and other interested parties. Commissioners McGihon and Mielke expressed interest in working with interested parties and agreed to act as contacts.
