Senator Charles Schumer Supports RPI on Proposition 65
On Friday, the Albany Times Union reported that U.S. Senator Charles Schumer held a news conference at Houston Field House on Thursday to announce his support for Rensselaer, St. Lawrence, Clarkson, Hartwick, and Oneonta in their efforts to defeat NCAA Proposition 65.
According to the article, Schumer (D-NY) is writing to "the presidents of 94 NCAA schools (47 in Division III) in New York state seeking their support for RPI and the other affected schools." Schumer said:
There is nothing to be gained from eliminating athletic grant-in-aids from Division I student-athletes. There is, however, plenty to lose.... This proposal is a change for the sake of change.
