GOVERNOR'S BUDGET-OHIO
Lawmakers change Ohio bill to clarify that college athletes are not employees, can't unionize

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, April 7, 2014 3:46 PM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


An Ohio legislative panel has changed a budget bill to make clear that college athletes are not employees under state law.

The move comes after a decision last month by a regional director of the National Labor Relations Board involving the Northwestern football team. The ruling said that full scholarship players can be considered employees and thus have the right to form a union.

The Ohio House Finance and Appropriations Committee amended a sweeping budget proposal on Monday to clarify that college athletes are not considered employees.

Chairman Ron Amstutz told reporters the change could have little effect. But he says if it comes up, it will be in the law.

The amendment was among dozens made to the bill, which is on track for a committee vote Tuesday.
