UPDATE (7:30 p.m.): The N.C. Senate has officially adjourned. No bill to repeal House Bill 2 was passed out of either body of the N.C. General Assembly.
After a motion was passed to divide the bill into two — one on the repeal of HB2 and one on the ban on local ordinances — the first proposition failed to pass 16-32. The bill was referred back to the Rules Committee.
Sen. Dan Blue, D-Wake, said he didn't think legislators had a plan going into the special session.
"It's not normal to waste four days and now it's going on nine hours … to accomplish nothing," Blue said.
UPDATE: Senate leader Phil Berger proposed an amendment to the bill — changing a six-month ban on new local ordinances, like Charlotte's, to a ban that would last 30 days after the adjournment of the 2017 legislative session. The amendment passed 29-19. This amendment would effectively lengthen the ban.
The N.C. Republican Party abandoned an agreement to repeal House Bill 2 Wednesday by trying to introduce new terms to the arrangement.
Governor-elect Roy Cooper revealed Monday lawmakers would meet Wednesday to repeal HB2 on the condition that Charlotte repeal its LGBTQ protection ordinance — what initially caused Republican Assembly members to pass HB2 in March.
