ICYMI: Rep. Meyer: It’s imperative legislators fully repeal HB2 before it’s too late

If you missed it over the weekend, be sure to check out our interview with state Rep. Graig Meyer, who discusses the need to fully repeal HB2 before it’s too late and what legislative leaders might do with this year’s state surplus.

A growing number of local elected officials are also appealing to the General Assembly for repeal.

On Monday, Durham Mayor Bill Bell joined the call to find a compromise on HB2. Under Bell’s proposed compromise, he would have the legislature repeal the controversial law and impose a six-month moratorium on municipalities from passing any future anti-discrimination ordinances, unless of course the U.S. Supreme Court rules on this issue sooner.  Read more about Mayor Bell’s proposal here.
