However, the Senate approved its version of the bill by a 31-5 margin, and the bill's basic intent remains unchanged.

Because the bill was amended after it had passed the State Senate, it will have to return there for a concurrence vote that could come as early as Tuesday, according to the office of Sen.

Last week, LA Lakers superstar LeBron James, who did not attend college, expressed his support of the bill before it was provisionally passed. A new national college-athlete advocacy group also has weighed in. Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green celebrated the bill passing Monday night. "California!

The amendments added by the Assembly include provisions created to address potential conflicts between prospective athlete deals and school deals, such as shoe-and-apparel contracts.

Several opponents of the bill were detained before the legislative session as they blocked entrances to the Capitol, including two women who briefly chained themselves to outside doorways.

Some athletes have previously sued the NCAA and video game makers in attempts to get paid for the use of their names and likenesses.
