The NCAA would like the State Legislature of North Carolina to know that they actively support attempts to subvert the will of the people.
The governing body for collegiate athletics said as much in a recent statement:

According to USA Today, “A city ordinance that ultimately led to North Carolina’s notorious “bathroom bill” was repealed Monday in what is expected to become a deal to repeal the law that requires transgender people to use public restrooms that correspond with the sex on their birth certificate.
“Charlotte City Council unanimously repealed the city’s non-discrimination ordinance because of what members said was ongoing negative economic impact resulting from state House Bill 2, according to a statement released after the vote. Charlotte council members amended their city code in February to add marital status, familial status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression to its list of protections in public accommodations and passenger vehicle-for-hire ordinances.”
HB2 is expected to be repealed in full in a special session of the state legislature on Tuesday.
