Bad Policy and Bad for the Economy
Once again the State Legislature and Governor McCrory have acted against the interests of North Carolina. The record passage of HB2 (12 hours from draft to passage!) wrecks havoc with policies across the state and continues the attack on Municipal and County local government control.
The strategy to create a smokescreen of hysteria about who uses which bathroom to hide the broad attack on individual rights and local government is not working. Once people had time to read the bill the truth began to come out. In addition to the broad economic impact of businesses, performers and tourists boycotting our state the recent US Court of Appeals decision places billions of Federal funding for education at risk.
In spite of all the negative impacts the Republican leadership has remained obstinate in refusing to repeal the bill.
