Lamar Alexander says Money Paid to Student Athletes for Their Name, Image, Likeness Should Benefit All Student Athletes at that Institution
Washington, D.C. – “Money paid to student athletes for use of their name, image, and likeness should benefit all student athletes at that institution,” Senate education committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) told a Senate hearing Tuesday, September 15th, 2020. “Student athletes should not be on the payroll and treated as hired hands.”
“I do not see a good ending to allowing a few student athletes to be paid by commercial interests while most of their teammates are not,” Alexander said. “If young athletes want to be a part of a team, enjoy the undergraduate experience, learn from coaches who are among the best teachers, and be paid a full scholarship that helps them earn a degree worth $1 million during their lifetime, their earnings should benefit all student athletes at that institution. If they prefer to keep the money for themselves, let them become professionals.”

Senator Lamar Alexander: “Will There Be Enough COVID-19 Tests So We Can Watch Some Football This Fall, Or Basketball This Winter?”
Washington, D.C. – At a Senate hearing this past week on COVID-19 Coronavirus, U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) asked National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins whether “In the midst of all this depressing news about the virus, will there be enough tests so we can watch some football this fall, or basketball this winter?”
Alexander said the answer may depend upon Dr. Collins’ project to find new ways to produce tens of millions of quick, reliable diagnostic tests.
Dr. Collins is heading an effort, nicknamed the “shark tank,” to accelerate development of new tests to determine whether an individual has COVID-19 Coronavirus.
