General Assembly Repeals 'HB2'

The General Assembly voted on Thursday to repeal the controversial statewide bathroom bill. The bill is expected to be signed into law by Governor Roy Cooper.
HB142, a bill that was a licensure bill but gutted and transformed into an HB2 repeal bill for expedience in response to a NCAA final deadline issued Monday. The vote on Thursday came after 48 hours of intense negotiations between Governor Cooper, Sen. Phil Berger (R-Rockingham), Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland), and Senate Minority Leader Dan Blue (D-Wake).
