The Colonial Heights resident, who is expected to become Speaker of the House in January, introduced a bill now known as the “Cox bill” that was signed into law by Gov. Terry McAuliffe in 2015. It set limits on the percentage of a school’s athletic program that can be funded by student fees. And while it’s had little effect at Virginia and Virginia Tech, whose programs are fed largely through ticket sales and TV revenue, it has caused real pain at some of the state’s mid-major schools, including Old Dominion and Norfolk State. Both appear to be essentially in compliance with the law, but have struggled to do so. At the behest of President John Broderick, ODU’s Board of Visitors did not raise student fees last spring for the first time in recent memory. – Harry Minium, pilotonline.comRead More
