North Carolina Special Session Adjourns Without Repeal of ‘Bathroom Bill’
North Carolina lawmakers adjourned a special session yesterday without taking any action to repeal House Bill 2. The special session was called by Gov. Pat McCrory specifically for the purpose of repealing the bill.
House Bill 2 restricts which restrooms transgender people can use and blocks local governments from enacting nondiscrimination ordinances regarding the use of public bathrooms. The legislation has caused boycotts resulting in the loss of millions of dollars from cancelled conventions, concerts and sporting events.
