 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A labor organization in Ohio is questioning a change made to a state budget bill that clarifies that college athletes are not employees under state law.
The move by a House committee comes after last month's landmark decision by a National Labor Relations Board official involving the Northwestern University football team. The ruling says full scholarship players can be considered employees and thus can form a union. If the ruling holds up, it could have widespread repercussions in the multibillion-dollar college sports industry.
Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga accuses Republicans who control Ohio's House of trying to ''engineer punitive proposals.''
Committee Chairman Ron Amstutz (AHM'-stuts) has said the change could have little effect. But he says if it comes up, it will be in the law.
The bill is on track for a committee vote Tuesday.
