What Matters-Rep. Bert Jones-Tuesday, April 18, 2017-31 Minutes

Mark brings on Rep. Bert Jones (R-Rockingham) to discuss his bill HB728, which would require all UNC system universities to withdraw from the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) should the conference boycott the state again by withdrawing games over legislation they find disagreeable. Jones explains that the withdrawal is not immediate, but would go through a process based on the length of time media rights are in place. Jones says that UNC System schools are taxpayer supported and should not necessarily remain affiliated with a conference that is boycotting them.
