North Carolina rebuffs transgender bathroom law repeal

Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives Tim Moore confers with a colleague as the chamber convenes to consider repealing the controversial HB2 law limiting bathroom access for transgender people in Raleigh, North CarolinaBy Marti Maguire RALEIGH, N.C. (Reuters) – North Carolina’s Republican-controlled legislature on Wednesday rejected a bid to repeal a state law restricting bathroom access for transgender people, which has drawn months of protests and boycotts by opponents decrying the measure as discriminatory. A one-day special legislative session ended abruptly after the state Senate voted against abolishing a law that has made North Carolina the latest U.S. battleground over lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights. Democratic Senator Jeff Jackson said the repeal effort failed because Republicans reneged on their deal to bring the measure to a floor vote with no strings attached.
