NC governor modifies House Bill 2 limits

Governor McCrory in his video message about his recent executive order on HB2.

In light of campus protests and high-profile boycotts of North Carolina, Governor McCrory this week issued Executive Order 93, which makes small concessions to HB2 opponents. In it he affirms the right of local governments to establish non-discrimination policies, but only for their own government employees. He expanded the states’s policy to protect government employment regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, but some states agencies already covered that. In the order he asks the General Assembly to reinstate the right to sue in state court for discrimination. McCrory hasn’t budged on the issue of gendered bathrooms and locker rooms, the most sensational part of HB2. McCrory ended his video message this week by asking God to “continue to bless the great state of North Carolina.”
