Breaking: Florida house passes bill allowing college athletes to earn money

The Florida House of Representatives on Friday night gave the final legislative approval of a bill that would help college athletes in the state make money from their name, image and likeness, beginning July 1, 2021.

The House’s action — by a 98-14 vote — sends the measure to Gov. Ron DeSantis, who announced in October that he supports such a proposal.

The Senate approved the bill earlier this week by a 37-2 margin.

Ron DeSantis was quite the athlete in high school as a star baseball player, which I think he will be very quick to sign the bill. If it is signed then it will be in place before California.
