Washington is working on another bill that would cover issues related to name, image and likeness in college sports.

The U.S. House of Representatives this week will see a “discussion draft” of a college-sports bill that would cover athletes’ NIL activities and provide schools legal protection being sought by the NCAA, according to a letter from Rep. August Pfluger, R-Texas, that has been circulated among college sports officials and other member of Congress.

USA Today reported that the bill would allow NIL deals, give NCAA legal protection, not allow athletes to be employees and create a regulatory body to make, enforce rules about collectives, boosters and athlete endorsement deals.

Darren Heitner, a Florida attorney involved in NIL, said that the bill “should be dead on arrival. It would be nice if Congress were to stop wasting time and pretending that they care about athletes’ rights.”

Legal protection has been a major lobbying priority for the NCAA after it’s been on the losing end of a pair of major antitrust cases in recent years, including one decided unanimously by the Supreme Court. Two other cases are also pending.

Pfluger wrote that while he has “reservations about creating a new regulatory body, I believe it is a better option than delegating such a responsibility to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) under Chair Lina Kahn. The only instance in which the FTC will intervene is in cases of deceptive practices.”
