For the 4th Time, Roy Cooper Tries To Sabotage HB2 Repeal He Claims To Want…

Excerpt From: News & Observer. Written By: Craig Jarvis.

State House Speaker Tim Moore on Monday criticized Gov. Roy Cooper for his remarks on Sunday opposing part of a bill that would repeal last year’s House Bill 2.

“Gov. Cooper should stop playing political games, stop trying to please special interest groups and stop attempting to sabotage legislative efforts to find consensus on both sides of the aisle and among the business community,” Moore said in a statement his office released. “This effort takes careful compromise, and House Bill 186 is a real solution that actually addresses conflicts with House Bill 2, finds common ground across stakeholder communities and fully protects the privacy and safety of North Carolinians.”

HB 186 was filed last week by a mix of Republican and Democratic House members. It would repeal HB2 and allow cities and counties to adopt their own anti-discrimination protections, as Charlotte did a year ago in allowing people to use the public restroom that fits their gender identity rather than their sex at birth – before HB2 blocked that law. Under HB 186, however, local governments would not be able to extend anti-discrimination protections to privately owned restrooms, only to city-run facilities.
