California and other states have made “name, image and likeness rights” a hot topic with bills like the Golden State’s “Fair Pay to Play Act.” Some observers have noted that the NCAA, which currently forbids student-athletes to profit off of their name, image and likeness, would likely be overwhelmed if it has to deal with the issue on a state-by-state basis. Now the federal government is planning to get involved, according to Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT).

Brain Murphy of The News & Observer shared some comments Romney made on the athlete compensation debate.

“You know something is seriously awry. … The reality is Congress is going to act. We’re coming for you. We’re coming to help these athletes,” Romney said.

CBS Sports notes that the comments were made at a roundtable event with ESPN analyst Jay Bilas and Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC) who introduced a federal statute that would apply across every state.

Romney, a former nominee for President and noted Grove tailgater, won Senate election in Utah on Nov. 6, 2018.
