The NCAA has reportedly given the state of North Carolina 48 hours to repeal HB2, the bill that prohibits transgender people from using public restrooms that correspond with the gender they choose, or the state will lose NCAA championship events through 2022.
On Tuesday, Scott Dupree, Executive Director of the Greater Raleigh Sports Alliance, stated:
"I have confirmed with a contact very close to the NCAA that its deadline for HB2 is 48 hours from now. If HB2 has not been resolved by that time, the NCAA will have no choice but to move forward without the North Carolina bids. The NCAA has already delayed the bid review process once and has waited as long as it possibly can, and now it must finalize all championship site selections through spring of 2022."
