SB 1385, Texas’ name, image, and likeness bill, sent to Gov. Abbott for approval

A house-amended version of Senate Bill 1385 passed in the Texas Senate on Friday, with the bill now awaiting the signature of Governor Greg Abbott (R). Once Abbott puts pen to paper or allows 10 days to pass without a veto, Texas will become the 17th state to enact legislation enabling collegiate student-athletes to profit off their name, image, and likeness (NIL).
