This is a bold and noteworthy move to combat the many problems created in the wake of the CLS v. Martinez decision and Open Membership policies (which I have written and talked about a lot!).
This legislation serves as a great example that hopefully many other states--perhaps even California--may be able to use to create and pass similar bills.
Open Membership policies hurt groups all across the political and religious spectrum, limit the viewpoints expressed on campus, and limit the ability of students to unite together around similar causes and/or beliefs. North Carolina joins a few other states who have also stood up in defense of belief-based student groups, and with some urging many more states will as well.
