There was no public testimony on this agenda item. The commission reported that last year it requested a sunrise review report from DORA and the report is expected in October. The commission is free to draft and introduce a bill regardless of the outcome of the report. Commissioner Mielke indicated that forty-one states have enacted the act in order to protect student athletes and Colorado continues to leave its students unprotected from predatory and unethical agents. DORA was given lists of stakeholders who support the act to contact and other background information. For workload reasons it may be prudent to proceed with drafting prior to receiving the report.
Commissioner Mielke moved to draft the Uniform Revised Athlete Agents Act (2015) and 2019 Amendments. Commissioner Levy seconded and the motion passed without objection.
