House passes equal pay bill for Team USA athletes

December 23, 2022

The House this week passed a bipartisan bill that requires equal compensation for U.S. women competing in international sports competitions. The bill, called the Equal Pay for Team USA, requires that all athletes representing the U.S. in international competitions receive equal pay and benefits, including medical care, travel and expenses.

It’s a landmark victory for women athletes, covering more than 50 national sports and requires the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee to handle oversight of the law. Axios
