ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – Maryland lawmakers are not waiting on the NCAA or Congress to allow college athletes to earn money from endorsements. The Maryland Senate passed legislation on a 47-0 vote. The House passed a similar bill earlier this month. The two chambers still need to approve the same bill to send it to Gov. Larry Hogan. If enacted, Maryland would join several other states that have approved laws to allow athletes to be compensated for use of their name, image or likeness.
