ACC: LGBT law could affect whether NC hosts league events

AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. (AP) — A North Carolina law that critics say can allow discrimination against members of the LGBT community could impact whether the state hosts Atlantic Coast Conference championship events.

In a statement Thursday, the ACC says member schools discussed the law during annual spring meetings. Signed in March, the law prevents local governments from passing their own anti-discrimination rules covering the use of public accommodations, a response to Charlotte leaders approving a measure allowing transgender people to use the restroom aligned with their gender identity.
