Athletic Association Accountability Act - HB328

There comes a time when the citizens of North Carolina need to stand up and say "Enough of this foolishness"! I have filed the Athletic Association Accountability Act. It is an act to determine whether the NCAA and the ACC have violated their Tax-Exempt status by engaging in political or lobbying activities.

Specifically, the NCAA and the ACC have allegedly engaged in excessive lobbying activities that exceeded their respective charters by using economic retaliation against NC for the purpose of forcing the General Assembly to adopt social legislation that is not connected to their core mission.

I believe the NCAA and the ACC have stepped out of bounds and, to the best of my ability, will never allow the General Assembly to relinquish its legislative authority over the internal affairs of the State or succumb to economic extortion to and from either the NCAA or the ACC.
