HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The Connecticut House of Representatives
has passed legislation requiring the fine print included in
athletic scholarships to be revealed to student athletes.

The bill, which passed 140-3, affects only Connecticut schools
of higher education.

It requires them to make their policies concerning the
sports-related medical expenses, standards for scholarship renewals
and out-of-pocket expenses that students on athletic scholarships
are expected to pay.

Many schools currently provide this information on their
websites. The legislation would require schools to provide recruits
with a link to the information.
New Haven Rep. Patricia Dillon, a Democrat, proposed the bill.

She said one of her constituents approached her about not knowing
the details of his athletic scholarship at an out-of-state
university.

The bill now moves to the Senate for final legislative action.
