USA Today reports that a group of U.S. senators, with former presidential candidate Cory Booker (D-New Jersey) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut) leading the charge, unveiled an outline for what they’re lamenting as a “bill of rights” for student-athletes.

From USA Today: “[The senators] issued a statement saying they will seek to give athletes ‘revenue-sharing agreements’ with the NCAA, conferences and schools, plus the ability to capitalize on their name, image and likeness ‘individually and as a group, with minimal restrictions.’ The envisioned bill also would create new safety and wellness standards, provide improved health care; attempt to improve educational outcomes and would end the requirement that athletes sit out if they change schools or withdraw from a National Letter of Intent.”
