Equality NC Responds to Governor Signing Worst Anti-LGBT Bill in Country
Chris Sgro, Executive Director of Equality NC said, "Pat McCrory tonight proved that he does not have the best interest of North Carolina in mind. He signed the worst anti-LGBT bill in the entire nation. The bill tears away at the fabric of my community by overturning and preempting vital protections for gay and transgender people. He goes back on his word again by signing legislation coming out of an expensive and unnecessary special session.
Red Hat, Biogen, Dow Chemical, and others have spoken in opposition and that's only the beginning of the impact on the business community here. Unfortunately, this likely means the state will have to spend more money on a lawsuit because of misguided or illegal legislation. It's an embarrassment for the Old North State."
