Lawmakers Reach Compromise on NC Bathroom Law – Total Conservative

Posted by Raw Editor on April 2, 2017 in politics |

After a year of national controversy, a legal battle with the Obama administration, and costly economic and political fallout, North Carolina lawmakers made key revisions to the state’s “bathroom bill” this week.Over that time, the law caused a lot of trouble for the state as organizations and companies boycotted previously planned expansions and events. It may also have led to the defeat of Republican Governor Pat McCrory, who wound up taking the heat for a law that he wasn’t particularly enthusiastic about in the first place.In any event, newly-elected Democrat Gov. Roy Cooper urged the GOP-controlled legislature to come together on a plan that would satisfy both parties and appease the NCAA, which was threatening to take more sporting events out of the state.North Carolina lawmakers came to an agreement this week to repeal the part of the law that requires people to use the bathroom that corresponds to their birth gender. In the new law, public restroom policy will be entrusted to the legislature, but nothing will be set in stone.Like most political compromises, this one left supporters on both sides unhappy with the end result. But LGBT groups and Democrats were much more sour than Republicans. They claim that the new bill is hardly a compromise at all and still deprives transgender people of their right to be free from discrimination.
