Monday News: New meaning to the term “Bully Pulpit”

REPUBLICAN LEGISLATOR GOES AFTER NCAA AND ACC LEAGUES OVER HB2 BOYCOTTS: An N.C. House Republican wants to look at striking back against the NCAA and ACC for moving sports championships out of North Carolina over House Bill 2. Rep. Mark Brody, a Republican from Monroe, announced in a Facebook post Sunday that he’ll file a bill this week to address the boycotts. Brody says his “Athletic Association Accountability Act” will “determine whether the NCAA and the ACC have violated their tax-exempt status by engaging in political or lobbying activities.” It’s unclear how Brody’s proposal would work, and his Facebook post offers no further details about his bill. According to the IRS, nonprofit groups can’t have tax-exempt status “if a substantial part of its activities is attempting to influence legislation.” But the groups “may engage in some lobbying, but too much lobbying activity risks loss of tax-exempt status.”
