The Indianapolis-based National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) came out today in opposition to HJR-3, a proposed state constitutional amendment that would write marriage discrimination into the Hoosier State's governing document.
The Indianapolis Star's Michael Pointer reports:
The Indianapolis-based NCAA says it's opposed to HJR-3, but isn't planning further action if the controversial measure passes the Indiana General Assembly and is approved by voters.
"The NCAA national office leadership strongly supports an environment of inclusion where all of our employees are treated fairly and enjoy equal protection under the law," NCAA spokesman Bob Williams said. "We urge Indiana lawmakers to legislate in the same spirit."
Williams said he doubts most member schools would want to get involved in HJR-3 because it is an Indiana issue and does not have a direct impact on playing conditions... Opponents of the HJR-3 are not seeking action by the NCAA, at least for now.
