WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Reuters) - The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) said on Tuesday it will again consider North Carolina to host championship games after state lawmakers replaced a controversial law that restricted public bathroom access for transgender people.

"This new law has minimally achieved a situation where we believe NCAA championships may be conducted in a nondiscriminatory environment," the governing body for U.S. college athletics said in a statement.
