Hearing on Due Process Is Canceled

November 01, 1991|DANNY ROBBINS

A California Senate committee hearing on legislation that would affect NCAA enforcement procedure was canceled at the request of the bill's author, Sen. Frank Hill (R-Whittier).

The sports subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Business and Professions was to have held an interim hearing Thursday on legislation that would prohibit the NCAA from imposing sanctions on California schools unless standards of legal due process were met.

Hill asked Tuesday that the hearing be canceled to allow for study of a report issued Monday by a special NCAA committee recommending a series of changes in NCAA enforcement procedure, according to Tim Shestek, a legislative aid in Hill's office.

Four states--Nevada, Nebraska, Illinois and Florida--have signed similar legislation into law in the last year.
