The NC state House and Senate have passed in the short session a bill to allow North Carolinians to file a discrimination lawsuit in state court within one year of an alleged offense.
This legislation, dubbed the HB2 “fix” bill, will go to Gov. McCrory for signature. HB2 is the controversial legislation denying transgender access to public washrooms that has caused a stir of national controversy and resulted in some businesses pulling their North Carolina expansion plans.
“Governor McCrory is pleased the General Assembly has acted on his request and restored non-discrimination protections in state courts,” said Josh Ellis, director of communications for the governor. “This action reinstates all statewide non-discrimination protections that were previously in place.”
