The bill will now head to the North Carolina Senate for consideration.
The bill approved today would allow UNC System Schools to sell beer and wine at athletic events.

14 out of the 15 UNC System Schools have shown support for the bill, which would bring public universities in line with private schools, like Wake Forest and Duke, that are already selling alcohol at games.

Statistics show when schools allow the sale of alcohol, the number of alcohol related incidents substantially decrease.
