CHICAGO (AP) — Legislation now on the governor’s desk seeks to protect Illinois student athletes from dishonest agents. The bill would require government licensing for sports agents who want to represent students. Agents could be investigated and lose their license for misconduct, such as defrauding a client or abusing drugs. The legislation also would require agents to notify student athletes that signing a contract might endanger their eligibility to compete. Athletes could cancel contracts within 14 days.
