CA WORKMAN'S COMP BILL DEAD: ATHLETES GET "BREATHING ROOM"
Published January 16, 1998
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).
