Missouri bid to strip scholarships if athletes strike pulled (The Associated Press)


A Missouri lawmaker withdrew a bill Wednesday that sought to strip scholarships from college athletes who refuse to play for reasons unrelated to health. Republican state Rep. Rick Brattin offered no explanation why he dropped the legislation filed Friday in response to last month's threat by University of Missouri football players not to play unless the school addressed complaints about racial issues on its main campus. Neither Brattin nor a Republican co-sponsor, state Rep. Kurt Bahr, immediately responded to phone messages seeking comment.
