House votes in favor of bill to repeal HB2, sent to Governor's desk

The deal reached between Cooper and Moore would repeal HB2, re-set bathroom access to pre-HB2 standards and also include a moratorium preventing local governments from passing their own non-discrimination ordinances through at least December 1, 2020, the NC General Assembly says. 

"A lot of us would not like to put a moratorium," Democratic Sen. Dan Blue said Thursday on laws protecting citizens. 

In a statement Wednesday, Cooper said, "I support the House Bill 2 repeal compromise that will be introduced tomorrow. It's not a perfect deal, but it repeals House Bill 2 and begins to repair our reputation." 

House Speaker Tim Moore spoke publicly just after 2 p.m. in the NCGA press conference room following the House's vote.

"We dealt with the local non-discrimination issue," Moore said. "Cities are out of that business for the next four years."

Moore also said that now "there is absolutely no justification for any league or any individual to treat us [NC] different" than other states.

I guess Cali libs won't be going there anytime soon. Mayors in N.Carolina are already whining about it.
