CA WORKMAN'S COMP BILL DEAD: ATHLETES GET "BREATHING ROOM"

          Pro athletes "won some breathing room" Wednesday in a
     "bitter fight" with team owners over restricting athletes'
     right to workers' compensation benefits in CA, according to
     Cathleen Ferraro of the SACRAMENTO BEE.  Four members of the
     Senate Industrial Relations Committee "split evenly" on the
     bill vote, "effectively defeating the measure."  A new date
     for a second vote or "additional testimony" could come
     sometime next week (SACRAMENTO BEE, 1/15).
