Congress & Sports Agents: A Legislative History of the Sports Agent Responsibility and Trust Act
Download Full Text (31.1 MB)
Although a majority of individual states have adopted legislation directed toward the conduct of sports agents, the federal government found it necessary to enact Public Law 108-304, the Sports Agent Responsibility and Trust Act (SPARTA). Congress has recognized that many acts of sports agents go unpunished because of disparate, ineffective, or in some cases, a complete absence of state laws.
This volume offers readers the legislative history of SPARTA, including copies of the law, reports, hearings, and related bills. An additional feature of the set is an appendix containing state legislation in this area. The appendix includes the language from each specific state that enacted the uniform act while also including those acts from legislatures who charted their own course.
