The measure passed the Senate on a 34-2 vote and returns to the Assembly for final action. The Senate amended the bill to allow claims that already have been filed to continue through the process.
"There is no reason an out-of-state athlete should seek these benefits in California having never been employed by a California team," said Sen. Jerry Hill,Zapatillas Deportivas Asics Baratas, D-San Mateo, who carried AB1309 in the Senate.
The state's workers compensation program has paid out $41.7 million in losses since 2002 for claims from professional athletes,Liverpool Adam Lallana Jersey, Hill said. Athletes filed an average 34 new claims per month from 2006 through 2012, he said.
Under Perea's bill, players from out-of-state teams would still be allowed to file claims if they spent more than 20 percent of their professional time in California or worked for a California-based team for part of their professional or semi-professional career.
Among the high-profile players who have filed claims are retired Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders, who alleges that he sustained injuries to his head, neck, leg and "multiple parts" while playing for the Dallas Cowboys.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Professional athletes who spent most of their careers with teams in other states but played some games in California would be prohibited from filing state workers' compensation claims under a bill approved Friday by the state Senate.
Hill said the out-of-state claims increase the burden on the state workers' compensation system, jam administration hearings, and could raise insurance costs. He said the athletes should get compensation for their injuries in the state where they were primarily employed.
California already has broad limits on filing workers' compensation claims based on when players learn of the injury and whether they were properly notified of their compensation rights when they retired.
California is one of nine states that currently permit workers' compensation claims on cumulative trauma injuries like those incurred by professional athletes over time,Jordan Outlet Australia. Labor groups opposed the bill for fear it would set a precedent for limiting access to benefits.
But Sen. Rod Wright, D-Inglewood, noted that the compensation itself is paid not by taxpayers, but by employers including the owners of professional football, baseball,Cheap Air Max 270 Womens, basketball,Man Utd Away Kit 2018/19, hockey and soccer teams.
"This is an effort by the team owners to not pay players," Wright said.
The bill by Assemblyman Henry Perea, D-Fresno, would block future claims for non-specific cumulative injuries.
"This loophole has been abused and utilized by out-of-state athletes," he said.
