Missouri measures would allow college athletes to be paid
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Missouri college athletes could be paid under new proposals by state lawmakers. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that at least two lawmakers are backing legislation next session to allow student-athletes to profit from their name and image. The Missouri proposals come after California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill into law in September that lets college athletes in that state hire agents and sign endorsement deals.
