"The fame image likeness and accomplishments of college athletes except for the athletes themselves and it's during a period when there palace and in fact earning capacity may be at one of its heights amateurism cannot be a means to monopolize college athleticism for lucrative media deals I hope that safe flight the California fear to play their pay to play act it will be a part of our consideration among other things if these laws provide new opportunities for women athletes who have less professional sports options after college than men allowing them to be compensated for their athletic achievements while in college and I look forward to continuing this work because we have a responsibility especially in the absence of leadership elsewhere but I hope there will be leadership I hope the NC double a we'll take advantage of the real opportunity it has to do right by hundreds of thousand athletes across the country whose talents generate billions of dollars for the college sports injury and I'm glad that the NCA NC double a is taking necessary steps to update its policies and I look forward to hearing from the NC double a it's a new rules to compensate athletes for their name image and likeness fund of mental fairness is at stake thank you Mr Senate commerce subcommittee hearing from Tuesday with you on this topic in this subcommittee and you and I have a habit of responding to California legislation we can do it one more time or maybe we can do it in both instances I now recognize the charm of the full committee center worker he and his staff have been instrumental in supportive of our efforts to bring this hearing to fruition this morning and I appreciate his presence here this morning center workers recognized well thank you very much German Moran and ranking member Blumenthal for calling us together for this important hearing I think we see by the size of the crowd and the attention that this hearing is receiving that that would that we're on to something very important and very timely I don't know how I feel about this issue Mister chairman all right I don't know where it's going to lead but let me say that I I do not disagree with anything that the chair or sensible Blumenthal have said during their opening statements we've got a situation where states are moving forward and we need to address the issue I'm as proud of it my state's history of intercollegiate at at the lyrics and some as senator Moran is and pointed out in his opening statement of senator Blumenthal it taken the time to do so he could have they could have pointed to great accomplishments in Connecticut also many college athletes come from middle class families as I did who could scrape together the funds and and pay for for a college education on their own if they had to but for many collegiate athletes a male and female and in football basketball or some of the other sports that are not quite so popular it's the first opportunity for that family to get out of poverty to go to college to grab a run on on the ladder of economic success and and certainly the legislation in California the legislation being proposed elsewhere recognizes that there's been a disparity there that that ought to be addressed I agree that it ought to be addressed perhaps name image and likeness is the answer I wonder soon to Blumenthal if it is if it is the answer in all categories of intercollegiate sports and I wonder if we can come up with something as a nation with the help of the NC double a and with the help of states to help us figure out the fairest way to make sure that no one is left out and that the athletes that do contribute to this fourteen billion dollar per year economy are are given their fair share in in bringing this largesse to our universities I agree with you Mister chairman also we could get into other issues had another hearing just a few days ago dealing with doping and we learned there's a problem with inter inter collegiate athletics with doping I'm gonna stay away from that today I hope I hope that members up and down the diets will heed your admonition that we that we have a specific topic to talk about today it it's I don't know where this is going to lead but I think this is an important step and air and the ranking member are are due to those for getting us moving on and not with that I yield backs Sherman worker thank you very much and thank you for your leadership in this issue and on the full committee and you're hearing last week let me now recognize Anthony originally Anthony Gonzalez a member of the house representative from Ohio with history regarding being a student athlete and we welcome your statement to ever personally thank you thank you chairman worker Sherman Moran ranking member Blumenthal and members of the subcommittee thank you for inviting me to speak on this timely topic as a former student athlete Ohio State University I know first hand the impact college sports has on our students are athletes and our communities across the country for me my time playing for Ohio state shape my life immeasurably and my appreciation for the lessons I learned on and off the field grows every day all that plus has a way of doing that for many of my teammates college sports provided the best and sometimes the only opportunity to attend college and earned a degree that's sad college sports has morphed into a multi billion dollar enterprise that few could have imagined when the answer to life first formed in nineteen oh six I'll just let X. generated more than ten billion dollars in revenue in twenty eighteen student athletes are still barred from capitalizing off their name image and likeness this is a regulation unique to student athletes on college campuses an award winning full scholarship chemist can accept any financial rewards that may come her way but the fastest runner on the track team cannot the reality is that the majority of student athletes are facing the same intense financial pressures the general student body including student loan debt outside a high revenue sports the majority of student athletes do not receive full tuition scholarships division three athletes receive no scholarship at all no I flexed eligible and I'll rights would empower these athletes to make a few extra dollars to alleviate some financial pressure it is this disparity that spurred the passage of California's fair pay to play out the law grants and I all rights to student athletes who compete in California well I agree with the idea in principle California's law fails to capture the new ones that is required to get this right firstly a state by state approach to and I would throw the collegiate athletic system into chaos it would undermine competition among schools from different states even if they compete in the same conference as it stands UCLA and Arizona state both pac twelve members are now on on equal footing because of the California law Sudan's considering a flutter scholarship offers a two schools now have an added outside incentive to pick UCLA the ability to profit off of name is like this this reality will only get worse of a patchwork of state and I'll laws becomes the norm secondly the California law created an anything goes system that fails to understand the realities of the hyper competitive recruiting process guardrails are crucial to protecting the integrity of the game and student athletes from overzealous boosters who may want to buy their way to their schools next national championship nevertheless the California law did get one thing right it forced the discussion about I'll into the national conversation and compel the NC double a universities and conferences to confront the reality head on over the past several months I've talked to student athletes conference commissioners athletic directors the NC double a and university administrators including some of those testifying here today despite uncertainty on the right path forward there is consensus that something must be done in a federal action is needed over twenty additional states are in the process of passing different and I'll laws the question is not should student athletes be able to profit off of and I'll the question has been answered the question before us today is how can we prevent state by state chaos and protect the collegiate athletics system that is beloved across the nation first the system must permit student athletes to capitalize on there and I all rights regardless of whether they participate in a high revenue sport like football or pitch for the university softball team and I I will benefit star players in high revenue sports but also athletes who want to earn a little money using their talents to pay off student loans or take their significant other on a date second federal legislation must protect student athletes in the recruitment process and penalize bad actors who seek to take advantage of the new and I all laws by expanding upon existing protections in federal law we can to turn bad actors encourage oversight and promote transparency so universities are aware of the and I'll contracts their students are entering into third any legislation must also guarantee that student athletes are still considered students not employees of an institution using an I. L. to create employment framework would destroy college sports as we know it important protections that currently exists for student athletes would be completely eradicated for one if a student athlete can be hired that means he or she can also be fired from personal experience I can tell you that incoming freshman recruit often do not live up to expectations in their first few seasons firing the students instead of investing in the development would eliminate countless opportunities in many instances the only opportunity the reality is the train has left the station on and I'll it is no longer a question of if but rather when and how Congress must act to preserve the collegiate sports system we all know and love for those reasons I've begun to draft federal legislation in the house to allow student athletes to profit from there and I'll create one uniform national standards I look forward to hearing from the witnesses on this issue and working with my colleagues in the Senate to find a bicameral bipartisan solution to the challenge before us today thank you for the opportunity to provide a safe congressman Anthony Gonzalez before a Senate commerce subcommittee earlier this week expertise serve both on the field and now in Congress we look forward to that bipartisan bicameral effort to get this right thank you well now call the the panel of witnesses to.
