Description

Institutions of higher education; intercollegiate athletics; student-athletes; compensation and representation. Prohibits any private institution of higher education, baccalaureate public institution of higher education, athletic association, athletic conference, or other organization with authority over intercollegiate athletics from (i) providing a prospective student-athlete with compensation that results from the use of the student's name, image, or likeness; (ii) prohibiting or preventing a student-athlete from earning from another individual or entity compensation that results from the use of the student's name, image, or likeness, except in certain limited circumstances; (iii) prohibiting or preventing a student-athlete from obtaining professional representation by an athlete agent or legal representation by an attorney licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth; or (iv) declaring ineligible for or revoking a scholarship provided to a student-athlete who earns compensation that results from the use of the student's name, image, or likeness. The bill prohibits any athletic association, athletic conference, or other organization with authority over intercollegiate athletics from prohibiting or preventing a private institution of higher education or baccalaureate public institution of higher education from becoming a member of or participating in intercollegiate athletics sponsored by such association, conference, or organization as a consequence of the compensation of a student-athlete at such institution that results from the use of the student-athlete's name, image, or likeness. The foregoing provisions of the bill have a delayed effective date of July 1, 2024. The bill also requires the Chancellor of the Virginia Community College System to convene a work group consisting of such members as the Chancellor deems appropriate to consider and make recommendations to the Governor and the General Assembly no later July 1, 2022, relating to the compensation and representation of student-athletes enrolled at comprehensive community colleges in the Commonwealth.
