Statement on Passage of the Repeal of HB2
March 30, 2017 – As you may be aware, today the North Carolina General Assembly and Governor Roy Cooper brokered a compromise bill that partially repealed HB 2. The main result is a repeal of the law that required transgender people to use public bathrooms matching the gender on their birth certificates. It also restores the right of municipal governments to provide LGBT protections in their hiring and contracting practices. The repeal of HB2 does restore some protections for the LGBT community that had been completely voided by HB2. The Governor described the measure as an imperfect compromise and said it was not his preferred solution. In a conference call this evening in which I participated, the Governor pledged to work toward the implementation of full LGBT rights throughout the state.
