Listen: Washington, KOMO And NCWA discussed on News, Traffic and Weather
"For Washington football teams, but student athletes could have something big to look forward to next year. A new Bill in the state legislature would allow our state's college athletes to be paid. If passed the Bill would make it a violation to ban Washington students from being paid or to punish school. It would also allow student athletes to get an agent which is currently not allowed by the NCWA. Supporters say the NC double as a multi billion dollar organization, and it's time student athletes get their fair share all this money coming into the system. But none of it ever goes to the players. It's not allowed to go to the players. Even though they're the ones responsible for you know, well over ninety percent of the value. Of the college force enterprise. We reached out to the NCAA four response. But haven't heard back you says it's still reviewing legislation and that brings us to our poll question tonight should college athletes in Washington be paid to vote. Just head to our KOMO news Facebook page, we're counting down tonight in three days and just under twenty three hours. You'll never be able to drive on the Alaskan way viaduct again and for the three following weeks. There will be no highway ninety nine access through downtown Seattle, and that will affect pretty much everyone who commute into or out of."
