Multiple pieces of legislation passed through the Illinois General Assembly recently were signed into law, including a bill on name, image and likeness opportunities for student-athletes and a bill aimed at streamlining property tax relief for seniors, veterans and people living with disabilities.
Friday, House Bill 1175 was signed, which amends the Student-Athlete Endorsement Rights Act, permitting a student-athlete to retain an agent for any matter or activity relating to compensation for the use of the name, image, likeness or voice of the student-athlete while enrolled in a postsecondary educational institution. The bill also requires a student-athlete to provide the institution with written notice and a copy of any agreement entered into for professional representation in a manner and time prescribed by the institution.
