ncaa decision on north carolina hb2 repeal: what it means

General view of the NCAA logo on the floor during action at University of Dayton Arena on March 20, 2013 in Dayton, Ohio. Joe Robbins—Getty ImagesThe NCAA announced on Tuesday that the deal was good enough.After more than a year of controversy in North Carolina over HB2, a law widely viewed as discriminatory toward LGBT people, Republican lawmakers and the state's new Democratic governor reached a deal to repeal it last week. And the NCAA, which had joined many businesses in boycotting the state over the measure, "reluctantly" said that North Carolina could again be considered as a host for college championship games. The new law, which removed the requirement that transgender people use bathrooms that match birth certificates but still blocks local protections for LGBT people, "minimally

Clay Aiken voiced his support for a deal North Carolina lawmakers reached on Thursday (March 30) to repeal the state's controversial HB2 "bathroom bill" that limited transgender peoples' rights to use restrooms matching their gender identity."Never underestimate the power of college basketball in the state of #NC    - So long #HB2 #HB2Repeal," Aiken tweeted after the state's House passed the bill 70-48 and Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper signed it into law. Aiken is a native of Raleigh, North Carolina, and was the 2014 Democratic nominee in the state's 2nd congressional district election.When HB2 was passed last March under former Gov. Pat McCrory, it received a massive political and financial backlash that included a face-off between the basketball-loving state and the NCAA. The NCAA responded

Phillip—APThe "buts." Gonzaga University, a small Jesuit school out in Spokane, Wash., that will play for the NCAA men's basketball championship on Monday night against North Carolina, can't stop hearing the "buts." Gonzaga's a good basketball team, but ... the Bulldogs play in the West Coast Conference, a league that toils outside the football-driven "Power 5" conference structure. They've never made the Final Four (until this season). They're not-battle tested. They're nervous.Since 1999, when Gonzaga made a Cinderella run to the Elite Eight, the Gonzaga has oozed excellence. They've made the NCAA tou

Social conservatives would prefer to have House Bill 2 stay on the books. Gay rights groups believe the replacement bill allows discrimination.Sen. Dan Bishop, a primary sponsor of HB2, denounced the new deal on the Senate floor."This bill is at best a punt, at worst a betrayal of principle," said the Republ

Roy Cooper said late Wednesday that they have agreed on legislation to resolve a standoff over the state's "bathroom bill" through a replacement measure that still restricts LGBT nondiscrimination protections.GOP leaders announced the new legislation would be debated and voted on Thursday, but it was unclear whether there were enough House and Senate votes to pass it.

ncaa: north carolina brise le rêve de gonzaga et de tillie

North Carolina, ancienne université du légendaire Michael Jordan, s'est offert le titre NCAA pour la sixième fois de son histoire après 1957, 1982, 1993, 2005 et 2009. Les "Tar Heels" ont surtout effacé leur désillusion de la finale 2016 où ils s'étaient inclinés de justesse face à Villanova (77-74). Cette finale indécise, disputée devant 77.000 spectateurs, a basculé en faveur de North Carolina à trente secondes de la sirène grâce à un panier d'Isaiah Hicks puis un contre de Kennedy Meeks. Pour sa première participation à une finale NCAA, Gonzaga, qui avait abordé cette finale avec un bilan impressionnant de 37 victoires en 38 matches, a viré en tête à la pause (35-32). Mais les "Zags" ont été pénalisés par les fautes à répétition de leurs intérieurs, Zach Collins et Przemek Karnowski. Da

north carolina's 'bathroom bill' to cost $3.76 billion

Despite Republican assurances that North Carolina's "bathroom bill" isn't hurting the economy, the law limiting LGBT protections will cost the state more than $3.76 billion in lost business over a dozen years, according to an Associated Press analysis.Over the past year, North Carolina has suffered financial hits ranging from scuttled plans for a PayPal facility that would have added an estimated $2.66 billion to the state's economy to a canceled Ringo Starr concert that deprived a town's amphitheater of about $33,000 in revenue. The blows have landed in the state's biggest cities as well as towns surrounding its flagship university, and from the mountains to the coast.North Carolina could lose hundreds of millions more because the NCAA is avoiding the state, usually a favored host. The gr

in north carolina, the end of an error?

It was just last year that city officials in Charlotte approved a broad anti-discrimination measure, which included protections that allowed people to use restrooms consistent with their gender identity. With remarkable speed and efficiency, then-Gov. Pat McCrory (R) and the Republican-led state legislature swiftly approved an LGBT state law, HB 2, to undo what Charlotte had done.GOP officials were woefully unprepared for the culture-war backlash, which by some estimates, ended up costing the state dearly. It also contributed to Pat McCrory losing his job – the Tar Heel State Republican was the only incumbent governor in either party to lose in 2016.The current effort in North Carolina is cleaning up the mess. NBC News confirmed that state policymakers have reached an agreement to repeal t

Mark Walker, also of North Carolina, both said on Monday that they could not support key provisions in the most likely plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act.The two caucuses represent more than 170 members of the House majority, and it would take less than two dozen defections among Republicans to sink the repeal effort, assuming Democrats vote as a bloc."We can’t vote for the current plan as it is," said Meadows of the House Freedom Caucus me

bathroom bill: former north carolina governor looks for work

Former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory , who was defeated in his reelection campaign this past November, now says he's having trouble finding jobs in the private sector because of the backlash against the state's controversial "bathroom bill.""Even after I left office people are reluctant to hire me, because, ‘oh my gosh, he’s a bigot’ which is the last thing I am,” McCrory said in a podcast on World Radio on March 10. "I'm in some ways actually liberal on some of these issues. I'm a libertarian, on many of these issues but I don't think the city government, a state government, a federal government should be able to tell the private sector what the new definition of 'gender' is.The bill, known as HB2, passed the North Carolina state legislature in 2016, and required people to use the publi

supreme court discusses sex offender's social media ban

Packingham's lawyer David Goldberg argues that the ban covers "vast swaths" of core First Amendment speech, even parts that have nothing to do with preventing child abuse. He agrees that social media ban as a condition of parole is reasonable, but a lifetime ban is a denial of free speech. Goldberg's argument has led to the discussion of whether it's possible to live these days without Facebook or Twitter, especially since numerous politicians use them religiously. "This has become a crucially important channel of political communication," Justice Elena Kagan said. She reasoned that under North Carolina's social media ban "a person couldn't go onto those sites and find out what these members of our government are thinking or saying or doing." The justices also questioned the North Carolina

north carolina gop files bill voiding same-sex marriage

Three Republican lawmakers have filed a bill seeking to outlaw same-sex marriage within North Carolina.House Bill 780, otherwise known as the “Uphold Historical Marriage Act," says the United States Supreme Court "overstepped its constitutional bounds" when it negated an amendment of North Carolina's constitution in its 2015 landmark Obergefell v. Hodges case that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.If passed, North Carolina's new bill would invalidate same-sex marriage, reportedly including marriages that have already been officiated — both in and out of the state — despite the Supreme Court's ruling.The bill's main sponsors are Reps. Larry Pittman, Michael Speciale, and Carl Ford, who in the filed bill cite a 61% affirmative vote for Article 14, Section 6 of the state's constitution t
