NCAA 'reluctantly' agrees to let North Carolina host events

It also led to multiple economic consequences - a projected $3.76 billion over 12 years per the Associated Press - when the National Basketball Association and various businesses pulled their events from North Carolina to protect workers, fans and participants.

Anti-LGBT legislators have already signaled their intent to build off the passage of HB 142 to pass more explicit laws targeting transgender people for using restrooms consistent with their gender identity. Those events were moved to the Upstate specifically because of HB2. "This was a repackaging of the same discriminatory policy against LGBTQ people".

But now HB142 is facing backlash of its own.

The original bill also invalidated any local ordinances protecting gay or transgender people from discrimination in the workplace or in public accommodations. "It stops short of many things we need to do as a state".

The NCAA has agreed to "reluctantly" consider holding its championship event in the state of North Carolina after the state's partial repeal of House Bill 2, which was widely known as the "bathroom bill" because it forced individuals to use the bathroom that corresponds with the sex listed on their birth certificate.

Santa Fe Mayor Javier González: "Cities are closer to the people they serve than any other form of government, giving us both the ability and the duty to hear and take real action on their concerns - especially when they involve safety".

McFall said there likely is more economic fallout to come as "the legislature now looks stubborn and capricious to potential investors who might think of North Carolina as a location for a part of its corporate or research interests". "I feel like we are going back in time instead of forward".

Wahl said that though she understands why HB2 was written, its objective went awry.

"This new law is not a repeal of HB2". The board "remains concerned" about the new law and its efforts to create a safe environment for all athletes and sports fans.

"The NCAA's boycott of N.C. achieved what it wanted - the repeal of HB2 - proving that bullying works as long as you meet the demands of the bully". "However, the NCAA had no business demanding anything of North Carolina lawmakers".

Dzinich said he blamed the governor's lack of power for the situation.

The move comes as the ACC also said it would also consider the state for championship games, but also as US mayors denounced the legislative maneuvering, saying they will continue to boycott the state - proving the issue is far from resolved for North Carolina.

Freshman and North Carolina resident Grace Briskman said she believes some progress has still been made.

"It is disappointing to see the NCAA backpedal after it stood strong against the deeply discriminatory HB2", Human Rights Campaign and Equality NC executive director Chris Sgro said in a statement.

"It seemed to me like the replacement bill was a way to get the money back to those massive organizations that punished North Carolina for HB2 and a way to coverup the bathroom problem rather than solving the bathroom problem", Briskman said.
