COLORADO BILL WOULD REGULATE AGENT CONTACT WITH COLLEGIANS
Published March 19, 1996
A bill aimed at protecting athletes and universities from "unscrupulous sports agents" could be considered by the CO Senate's Education Committee this week. If passed, the bill, sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Jeff Wills, would subject agents to $10,000 fines for contacting student-athletes prior to the end of their collegiate eligibility. The bill includes a provision allowing schools to sue agents for losses resulting from NCAA sanctions. The bill also would require agents' contracts to be standardized and filed with the athlete's school within 72 hours of being signed and allow the student-athlete rescind rights within 15 days of signing (Curtis Eichelberger, ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS, 3/17).
