As many of you already know, I have been advocating trying to help get SB 206 passed in the California legislature. SB 206 is a bill that has the potential to start a national movement and change the course of history and the way that the American college sports system operates. I've testified in both the CA Senate and the CA Assembly, have written letters to representatives and Governor Newsom, and have been interviewed by news outlets on this issue during the past few months. While my social media pages reflect my reasoning and arguments, I wanted to share here a way for any of you who might be interested in voicing support to write to the Governor. He is the only person left to convince. The bill passed unanimously (!!!) through the legislature, but the Governor has the power to either veto the bill or sign it into law. If he does nothing, it will become law within 30 days. So, if you are interested in supporting the bill, head to this link: https://govapps.gov.ca.gov/gov40mail/index.php. Input your contact info and then where it says "Please choose your subject" scroll down and select "SB206: Collegiate athletics..." from the drop down menu. If you don't know what to say but would like to voice your support, message me and I can give you some ideas. Thank you!
P.S. Getting to advocate for this bill has restored my belief in the effectiveness of representative government. All the senators and assemblymen and women in the CA legislature that I have heard from and met with care deeply about their constituents and work hard to do what they can to weigh the opinions and desires of those they serve. Your voice will be heard. Writing a letter to the Governor is not futile. The more Governor Newsom hears from The People, the less afraid he will be of trailblazing in the realm of college athletics and student-athlete rights.
