Gavin Newsom signs California's 'Fair Pay to Play Act' w/ Lebron James

Governor Gavin Newsom sent a major message to the NCAA when he signed into law California's 'Fair Pay to Play Act' (SB206) last Friday September 27th on the set of HBO's The Shop, giving college athletes the ability to responsibly and fairly be paid for use of their name and likeness in the state of California. The governor of California sat down with LeBron James, Maverick Carter, Rich Paul, Diana Taurasi, Ed O'Bannon, and Katelyn Ohashi on the set of The Shop to discuss the importance of the new law and the impact that it will have on college athletes not only in California, but across the entire country.
