TONIGHT ON A STORY VOTE ON
COLLEGE SPORTS FOR MORE THAN A
CENTURY STUDENT ATHLETES HAVE
NOT BEEN ALLOWED TO MAKE MONEY OFF OF THEIR FAME ANYONE CAUGHT
SELLING GEAR SIGNING MEMORABILIA
FOR MONEY HAS GOTTEN IN BIG BIG
TROUBLE WITH THE NCAA IN THE
PAST TONIGHT THOUGH. IT LOOKS
LIKE THOSE RULES. POTENTIALLY COULD CHANGE T BOARD OF
GOVERNORS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED
ALLOWING STUDENT ATHLETES TO
QUOTE BENEFIT FROM THE USE OF
THEIR NAME IMAGE AND LIKENESS IN
A MANNER CONSISTENT WITH THE COLLEGIATE MODEL CHRIS. LEA IS
HERE TONIGHT TO EXPLAIN EXACTLY
WHAT ALL OF THIS MEANS CHRIS IS
THIS CLOSE TO A DONE DEAL AT
THIS POINT. WELL KENNY, THE
SHORT ANSWER IS NO THE BOARD BOARDS VOTE JUST BEGINNING IS
THE BEGINNING OF A POSSIBLE
CHANGE THE NCAA’S THREE
DIVISIONS NOW HAVE TO UPDATE
THEIR RULES. THEN THERE HAS TO
BE APPROVED AFTER THAT. IT’LL BE AT LEAST HERE BEFORE WE SEE ANY
BIG CHANGES ACTUALLY COMING FROM
THIS NOW ONE THING THAT’S
IMPORTANT TO MAKE CLEAR IS THAT
THIS VOTE DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE
NCAA IS ALLOWING ATHLETES TO GET PAID TO PLAY SPORTS PART OF THE
NCAA’S FULL STATEMENT MAKES IT
CLEAR THAT STUDE ATHLETES ARE
STUDENTS FIRST AND NOT EMPLOYEES
OF THE UNIVERSITY NOW, IT’S
STILL NOT ENTIRELY CLEAR WHAT THIS WILL LOOK LIKE, BUT IT
COULD OPEN UP MORE OPPORTUNITIES
FOR STUDENT ATHLETES. DO THINGS
LIKE SIGN ENDORSEMENT DEALS AND
LICENSING CONTRACTS NOW TODAY WE
GOT REACTION ON THE VOTE. FORMER NBA ALL-STAR AND WINSTON-SALEM
NATIVE JOSH HOWARD. HERE’S WHAT
HE HAD TO SA NO AS FAR AS BEEN
A FORMER STUDENT ATHLETE IF I
WAS TO HEAR THAT TYPE OF NEWS, I
WOULD KIND OF EXCITED, YOU KNOW TO FURTHER MY OPPORTUNITY IN
LIFE, YOU KNOW, SO WITH THAT
BEING SAID, I THINK IT COULD BE
GREAT FOR YOU KNOW, THE STUDENT
ATHLETES COMING UP I THINK IN MY
MIND OUTSIDE OF YOU KNOW, GOING OUT AND ASK FOR A LOAN IF THE
SMART STUDENT ATHLETE DOES RIGHT
BY THIS PLAN IF IT HAPPENS, THEY
WILL COME OUT, YOU KNOW,
BASICALLY ON TOP OF COURSE JOSH
PLAY BASKETBALL OVER AT WAKE FOREST CALIFORNIA LAWMAKERS
PASSED A LAW LAST MONTH THAT
MAKES IT ILLEGAL FOR SCHOOLS AND
THE STATE OF PROHIBIT ATHLETES
FROM MAKING MONEY ON
ENDORSEMENTS SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS AND SOCIAL MEDIA ADVERTISING
CALIFORNIA’S LAW TAKES IN IN
FACT IN EFFECT IN 2023 AND MORE
THAN A DOZEN STATES ARE
FOLLOWING WITH SIMILAR
LEGISLATION AFTER THAT AND A STUDIO. I’M CHRIS LEA RALEIGH
THANK YOU, CHRIS AND NORTHPCAROL
IS ONE OF NUMBER OF FEDERAL
LAWMAKERS PUSHING FOR THE BLAYNE
TO MAKE THESE CHANGES. HE
PROPOSED THESE STUDENT ATHLETE EQUITY ACT BACK IN THE SPRING
TIME TO ALLOW NCAA ATHLETES TO
BE COMPENSATED FOR THE USE OF
THEIR NAME IMAGE AND LIKENESS IN
A STATEMENT TODAY TO CONGRESSMAN
SAYS QUOTE. WE CLEARLY HAVE THE NCAA’S ATTENTION NOW WE NEED TO
HAVE THEIR ACTION WHILE THEIR
WORDS ARE PROMISING THEY HAVE
USED WORDS IN THE PAST TO DENY
EQUITY AND BASIC CONSTITUTIONAL
RIGHTS FOR STUDENT ATHLETES. THE CONGRESSMAN SAYS HE’S GOING TO
KEEP WORKING TOWARD PASSING
THESE STUDENT ATHLETE EQUITY ACT
EVEN I OF TODAY’S NEWS. MEANWHILE ANOTHER LOOKING FROM
NORTH CAROLINA PLANS TO
INTRODUCE HIS OWN LEGISLATION IN
RESPONSE TO TODAY’S N-C-DOUBLE A
VOTE SENATOR RICHARD BURR
TWEETED IF COLLEGE ATHLETES ARE GOING TO MAKE MONEY OFF THEIR
LIKENESS WHILE IN SCHOOL THEIR
SCHOLARSHIPS SHOULD BE TREATED
LIKE INCOME. I’LL BE INTRODUCING
LEGISLATION THAT SUBJECTS
SCHOLARSHIPS GIVEN TO ATHLETES WHO CHOOSE TO CASH IN TO INCOME
TAXES. YOU CAN READ MUCH MORE
ABOUT THE NCAA VOTE RIGHT NOW ON
OUR WEBSITE WXII12.COM. IT’S
ALSO ON OUR MOBILE APP WE HAVE
TH NCAA GROUPS STATEMENT REGARDING THE OLD ON THAT
HOMEPAGE STATE LAWMAKERS ARE
ALSO TALKING ABOUT STUDENT
ATHLETES RIGHT NOW A BILL
HEADING TO THE STATE SENATE
WOULD ALLOW UNC SYSTEM SCHOOLS TO AWARD FULL ATHLETIC
SCHOLARSHIPS TO OUT-OF-STATE
STUDENTS RIGHT NOW. THOSE FULL
SCHOLARSHIPS ARE ONLY GIVEN TO
IN-STATE STUDENTS SUPPORTERS SAY
THIS IS FAIR BECAUSE OUT-OF-STATE STUDENTS WHO GET
FULL ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS ARE
ALREADY TREATED AS IN-STATE
STUDENTS, BUT CRITICS WORRY THAT
TAXPAYERS WILL HAVE TO COVER THE
DIFFERENCE WHEN IT COMES TO TUITION AND OF COURSE IN
RALEIGH, THE BUDGET IS STILL A
HU OF DISCUSSION THE
STALEMATES BEEN ON FOR MONTHS
NOW SENATE LEADERS PROPOSED A
VOTE TO OVERRIDE THE GOVERNOR’S BUDGET VETO HOUSE APPROVED THE
SAME OVERRIDE BACK IN SEPTEMBER
THE SENATE COULD NOW POTENTIALLY
DO THE SAME TOMORROW. ALTHOUGH
THE FUTURE THERE IS VERY MUCH
UNCLEAR BILL O’NEIL EXPLAINS WHERE WE ARE AT THIS HOUR NO
END IN SIGHT 112 DAYS INTO THIS
BUDGET STANDOFF REPUBLICANS WHO
NO LONGER HOLD A SUPER MAJORITY
IN THE LEGISLATURE. THEY NEED
ONE DEMOCRAT TO JOIN THEM TO OVERRIDE THE GOVERNOR SO FAR
DEMOCRATS SAY THEY ARE UNITED IN
THEIR SUPPORT OF THE GOVERNOR. IT’S MY HOPE DEMOCRAS WILL DROP
THEIR MEDICAID ULTIMATUM WHILE
MEDICAID EXPANSION HAS PREVENTED
THE TWO SIDES WERE MAKING A DEAL
ON THE BUDGET SENATE LEADER PHIL
BERGER YESTERDAY AFTERNOON ANNOUNCED THE POSSIBILITY OF A
MANY BUDGET ON TEACHER PAY IF
DEMOCRATS REFUSED TO SUPPORT A
COMPROMISE FOR THE BUDGET. THEY
WILL NOT BE A PART OF THAT
PROCESS BERGER SAYS REPUBLICANS ARE PREPARED TO OFFER TEACHERS
MORE THAN THE THREE POINT NINE
PERCENT. THAT’S CURRENTLY IN THE
GOP SAY HOW MUCH MOORE AS WE
GIVE IT A COOPER OFF A TO PUT
MEDICAID ASIDE AND THE SHE A TEACHER SALARY SEPARATE FROM THE
BUDGET BURGER TURNED DOWN THE
OFFER SAYING TEACHER SALARIES
WERE TOO BIG A PART OF THE
BUDGET TO MAKE A SEPARATE DEAL
WHAT WE’VE HEARD FROM SENATOR BURGER ALL ALONG. IS THAT IF
MEDICAID EXPANSION IS AN
ULTIMATUM THEN WE HAVE NOTHING
TO TALK ABOUT SO, I THINK HE
CALLED THEIR BLUFF GUILFORD
COUNTY DEMOCRAT, MICHAEL. GARRETT SAYS HE REMAINS HOPEFUL
THE LEGISLATURE WILL COME AROUND
AND EXPAND MEDICAID COVERAGE IN
NORTH CAROLINA. I THINK THERE
ARE MANY MEMBERS OF THE
REPUBLICAN CAUCU JUST THAT UNDERSTAND THE IMPACT OF
MEDICAID EXPANSION ESPECIALLY IN
RURAL NORTH CAROLINA AND ARE
OPEN TO SEEING IT DONE BUT ARE
FEARFUL OF A PRIMARY CHALLENGE
IF THEY DO IT BEFORE THAT, BUT WE WILL NEVER REACH AGREEMENT IF
THE DEMOCRATS CONTINUE TO OPPOSE
ANY COMPROMISE BUDGET THAT DOES
NOT INCLUDE MEDICAID EXPANSION. IT’S UP TO THEM. THEY CAN
NEGOTIATE WHERE THEY CAN HOLD
OUT OVER A SINGLE POLICY
DISAGREEMENT. SENATOR BERGER
SAYS THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY WILL
WRAP UP BUSINESS AT THIS THURSDAY WITH OR WITHOUT A
BUDGET. GREENSBORO BILL O’NEIL
