California would allow college athletes to earn money from the use of their names, images and likenesses under a bill passed by the state Legislature on Wednesday and headed to Gov. Gavin Newsom.

The legislation has garnered national attention, with athletes such as NBA stars LeBron James and Draymond Green praising the potential for California to give college athletes a share of the windfall they help create for their universities and the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

The NCAA has forcefully pushed back against the bill, saying it has the potential to kill amateur athletics. The NCAA sent Newsom a letter Wednesday calling the legislation “unconstitutional” and “harmful.”

NCAA President Mark Emmert sent a letter to state legislators in June that warned of dire consequences if the bill passed.

Sen. Nancy Skinner, the sponsor of the bill, dismissed the NCAA’s warnings and said in a statement Wednesday that legal scholars have concluded her bill is in fact constitutional.

“The NCAA has repeatedly lost anti-trust cases in courts throughout the nation,” Skinner said. “As a result, threats are their primary weapon.”

NCAA rules bar athletes from being compensated for use of their names, images or likenesses. The bill would not allow schools to directly pay athletes, but would permit students to receive compensation from outside sources – for example, from a video game company or for signing autographs or memorabilia.
