Missouri’s Governor to Sign Large Education Bill on Tuesday, which Contains Name, Image and Likeness Provision

(Missourinet) Bipartisan name, image and likeness legislation that’s a top priority for Mizzou football coach Eli Drinkwitz will be signed into law tomorrow (Tuesday) by Missouri’s governor. Brian Hauswirth has our report:

The provision is included in a higher education bill, which is sponsored by Cape Girardeau State Representative Wayne Wallingford. Republicans and Democrats pushed for the name, image and likeness legislation, saying it will help Mizzou better compete against defending national champion Alabama. The bill also designates Cape’s Southeast Missouri State University as an institution with a statewide mission in visual and performing arts, computer science and cybersecurity. And it designates Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville as an institution with a statewide mission in educator preparation, emergency/disaster management and profession-based learning.
