Cheerleaders from five NFL teams sued their teams last year for unfair pay and degrading work conditions. Now, nineteen lawmakers have sent a letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell urging teams to make right with the cheerleaders.

New York State Senator Diane Savino (D-23), New York State Assemblymember Nily Rozic (the lead sponsor of the Cheerleaders Fair Pay Act), and former cheerleader for the Golden State Warriors (NBA) Lisa Murray talk about their legislation.
