In particular, the refusal of the NCAA to hold competitions in North Carolina would deprive the state of hundreds of millions of dollars. In addition, large PayPal refused to open in the state a new branch — it would add to the state budget about of 2.66 billion dollars.
Musician Ringo Starr also canceled the concert, which was to help raise funds for the reconstruction of one of the local concert halls.
