RALEIGH, N.C. — Members of the state legislature voted on Tuesday morning to create a subcommittee to investigate the N.C. High School Athletic Association and the association will appear before the subcommittee for a hearing on Thursday afternoon.

In a meeting of the Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operations, Sen. Vickie Sawyer (R-Iredell) presented concerns about the NCHSAA’s role as a private non-profit corporation and said the NCHSAA has more money than other similar organizations across the country.

According to the resolution, the subcommittee will be asked to “further examine issues concerning the administration and management of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, and the oversight and supervision of interscholastic athletics in North Carolina public high schools.”

Speaker of the House Tim Moore and Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger are expected to be co-chair of the subcommittee.
