North Carolina repeals HB2 on day of NCAA deadline, but new bill isn't full reversal

The NCAA announced it would not bring events to North Carolina unless the state changed its controversial law. North Carolina lawmakers passed a new bill Thursday that repeals House Bill 2, the controversial law that led the NCAA and other sports governing bodies to move major events away from the state, but does not reverse all aspects of it. Democratic Governor Roy Cooper and Republican leaders in the state’s House and Senate announced a compromise late Wednesday night on the eve of the NCAA’s deadline for the state to change the law if it wanted to host postseason events between now and 2022.
