Abstract:
Last Wednesday, Governor McCrory signed a law ending the ability of cities to create their own nondiscrimination measures, eliminating workplace-discrimination lawsuits, forbidding local governments from raising the minimum wage, and codifying anti-LGBT animus into state law. McCrory’s office dispatched a press release in response to backlash. However, it appears that most of the items in the release are false of half-truths.

Abstract:
House Bill 2, the anti-LGBTQ legislation, has devastated North Carolina’s image. Most of the bill’s economic damage will be on the state’s urban centers, especially the Triangle and Charlotte. Due to the state’s partisan gerrymander, nine out of ten lawmakers who supported the bill are running unopposed or won their previous election by a landslide.

Abstract:
House Bill 2 has led to the loss of thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in North Carolina. But even worse, the provisions override local anti-discrimination against trans-people who are already marginalized and misunderstood. Democrats will likely use this issue against Republicans in this year’s election.

Abstract:
In the debate over House Bill 2, opinions diverge on who is the intimidator. The author talks about why efforts to find a compromise broke down and how the value of freedom versus security played a role. For opponents of the “bathroom bill,” state lawmakers were bullies dictating to local officials what ordinances they could pass and which bathrooms transgender North Carolinians could use in government buildings. For supporters of HB2, out-of-state interests were the bullies who were using boycotts and other pressure to dictate what laws could be passed and what their bathroom policies could be.

Unclear is how the 2016 House Bill 2 or “bathroom bill” has affected the state’s ability to attract films.
