Gov. Gavin Newsom Signs into Law Fair Pay to Play Act



Governor Gavin Newsom has signed into law the Fair Pay to Play Act, which says colleges in California cannot punish their athletes for collecting endorsement money, starting in 2023, a monumental decision that defies the NCAA, according to ESPN’s Dan Murphy.

Despite push back from the NCAA, California stood firm and their decision will likely lead to other states making the same call.

“Every single student in the university can market their name, image and likeness; they can go and get a YouTube channel, and they can monetize that,” Newsom said, during an interview with The New York Times. “The only group that can’t are athletes. Why is that?”

Newsom added that the measure was “a big move to expose the farce and to challenge a system that is outsized in its capacity to push back.”

The news was celebrated on Twitter:

Awareness is crucial to help maintain long-term health.
