HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The NCAA wasted no time in challenging a new Pennsylvania law designed to keep the $60 million Penn State fine over the Jerry Sandusky scandal in the state, filing a federal challenge to the legislation hours after Gov. Tom Corbett signed it into law Wednesday.

State and congressional lawmakers have objected to use of the NCAA fine to finance child abuse prevention efforts in other states.

The NCAA claims the state's action is unconstitutional.
