A: No. The NCAA is trying to fend off attempts by states to force the association into opening up the free market for athletes. The NCAA is also hoping to get help from Congress in the form of a federal law to that will override anything states come up with and provide uniformity.
Reactions to the NCAA's announcement from lawmakers ranged from cautiously optimistic (California state Sen. Nancy Skinner, the primary driver of the state's law on the topic, said it was a step in right direction) to downright dismissive (Florida state Rep. Chip LaMarca said: "If the NCAA's goal was to limit access, then they have accomplished their goal.").
