Indiana’s new Religious Freedom Law has caused a public outcry with sports organizations around the country denouncing it for it’s discriminatory language. As a result, the law has been amended to make it clear that individuals cannot be discriminated against. This weekend the Final Four is being held in Indianapolis and NCAA president Mark Emmert has released an official statement about the new changes to this controversial law.
“We are very pleased the Indiana legislature is taking action to amend Senate Bill 101 so that it is clear individuals cannot be discriminated against. NCAA core values call for an environment that is inclusive and non-discriminatory for our student-athletes, membership, fans, staff and their families. We look forward to the amended bill being passed quickly and signed into law expeditiously by the governor.”
