After the NCAA and ACC announced they would move championship events from North Carolina last week, three Republican state legislators — Rep. Gary Pendleton, R.- Wake, Sen. Rick Gunn, R.- Alamance and Randolph, and Sen. Tamara Barringer, R.- Wake, — have said they want to revisit HB2.
Gunn said in a statement although he is opposed to men having access to non-male rooms and bathrooms, he is concerned about the impact HB2 has had on the state.
“I think it is time we give serious consideration to modifying, or possibly repealing, HB2,” he said. “It is time for the federal courts to protect women and girls’ privacy.”
Josh Ellis, spokesperson for McCrory, said in a statement that state legislation is only necessary if the Charlotte ordinance — which included LGBTQ people in nondiscrimination protections — remains in place.
