North Carolina Votes To "Repeal" Bathroom Bill

 

The North Carolina House has voted to repeal the controversial "bathroom bill" that prevented transgender individuals from using the bathroom of their gender identity, instead requiring the gender on their birth certificate.

The governor is expected to sign the bill into law, but LGBTQ advocates say it's not what it seems.

The repeal bill is HB142 and contains compromise positions that still allow the state's lawmakers in charge of policy over multi-stall bathrooms and allow for ongoing court cases to play out through 2020.

The ACLU is delivering a letter to Governor Cooper urging him to veto the bill. "This is not a repeal of HB 2. Instead, they're reinforcing the worst aspects of the law" according to James Esseks with the ACLU LBGT Project.
