BREAKING: Charlotte City Council pulls anti-discrimination ordinance discussion from tonight’s agenda

The Charlotte Observer reports a bit of what appears to be good news:

“The Charlotte City Council will not discuss the economic impact of House Bill 2 at its meeting Monday, the city announced Monday afternoon.

That means there also will be no vote on repealing the city’s nondiscrimination ordinance that was approved in February.

Legislative leaders in Raleigh have asked council members to repeal the city’s nondiscrimination ordinance that provided legal protections to the LGBT community, even though HB2 nullified almost all of that ordinance.

In return, the General Assembly could modify HB2, in hopes of ending the impasse.”
