NCAA President Mark Emmert released a statement today following Indiana Governor Mike Pence's signing of SB101, which allows businesses to discriminate against LGBT people based on religious beliefs.
"The NCAA national office and our members are deeply committed to providing an inclusive environment for all our events. We are especially concerned about how this legislation could affect our student-athletes and employees. We will work diligently to assure student-athletes competing in, and visitors attending, next week’s Men’s Final Four in Indianapolis are not impacted negatively by this bill. Moving forward, we intend to closely examine the implications of this bill and how it might affect future events as well as our workforce."
