NCAA to survey potential host cities on discrimination laws (Yahoo Sports)

The NCAA is sending a questionnaire about potential discrimination laws to organizers in cities that will be or are hoping to host sanctioned college sports events. The NCAA board of governors' decision comes a day after the NBA announced it would pull its All-Star Game from Charlotte, North Carolina, because of its objections to a state law that limits anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay and transgender people. NCAA leaders had expressed opposition to the law known as HB2 since it was enacted in March.
