Statement on NC Legislature’s Failure to Repeal HB2

The North Carolina General Assembly spent the whole of today’s special session debating HB2 and have ended the day without repealing it.

In response, NCTE Executive Director Mara Keisling said:

The North Carolina legislature had one job today: to fully repeal HB2. They failed.

Legislative leaders in North Carolina have proven their dishonesty time and time again, and they proved it again today.

They broke their promise to repeal this harmful bill, and then tried to ram through a halfway measure instead—and failed to do that as well. At the end of the day, the people of North Carolina—particularly transgender people—continue to suffer under the harmful and discriminatory HB2.
