Letter: Gov. McCrory needs to give HB2 up


I am disgusted by the finger-pointing over HB2.

Since Gov. McCrory and the Republican legislature passed this disastrous law, North Carolina has lost thousands of jobs and more than $395 million. The costs continue to climb, now that the NCAA and the ACC have canceled their tournaments here. Gov. McCrory and the Republicans wrote and signed this bill in just 12 hours back in March.

McCrory initially claimed the whole thing was a vast left-wing conspiracy. Now he says it’s a national issue and we need to wait for the courts to decide. McCrory needs to repeal this terrible law. We can’t afford to wait, and we certainly can’t afford any more of Gov. McCrory’s finger-pointing.
