City statement on repeal of House Bill 2 

On March 30, 2017, a bill was introduced to the North Carolina Senate that overturns HB2. HB142 passed the Senate in a 32-16 vote and proceeded to the North Carolina House of Representatives for a vote. This afternoon, the House passed it in a 70-48 vote. Governor Roy Cooper signed HB142, which means that the bill is now in effect and HB2 has been repealed.
