North Carolina & Pat McCrory @PatMcCroryNC (USA)

Impact of North CarolinaThe North Carolina State Assembly approved a bill, House Bill 2, that overturns Charlotte, NC’s expansion of its non-discrimination ordinance, specifically, the controversial provision that allows individuals access to the sex-segregated facilities they identify with, rather than the facility intended for an individual of their sex class. Governor Pat McCrory signed the bill, stating, “This new government regulation defies common sense and basic community norms by allowing, for example, a man to use a woman’s bathroom, shower or locker room…While local municipalities have important priorities working to oversee police, fire, water and sewer, zoning, roads, and transit, the mayor and city council took action far out of its core responsibilities. As a result, I have signed legislation passed by a bipartisan majority to stop this breach of basic privacy and etiquette…It is now time for the city of Charlotte elected officials and state elected officials to get back to working on the issues most important to our citizens.”  Following the announcement of McCrory’s signing of this bill, the ACLU of North Carolina issued a Tweet in which they state they are “considering legal challenge.”

  1. Might be pertinent to mention that it removes all anti-discrimination laws that aren’t passed by the state as well as removing any minimum wage laws.
