Male and Female Restrooms

House Bill 142 was introduced yesterday as the repeal bill to controversial “bathroom” bill HB2. It happened quickly an many don’t understand what really just happened. Thanks to CharlotteFive for breaking it down for us here.  Charlotte Five shares that the bill has three parts:

(1) Repeal HB2. (Translation: The part of the law that required people to use the bathroom that matches the gender on their birth certificate is gone.)

(2)  “Preempt regulation of access to multiple occupancy restrooms, showers, or changing facilities by any State or local government.” (Translation: The state gets to regulate multiple occupancy restrooms, showers.)

(3) Put a moratorium on local ordinances “regulating private employment practices or regulating public accommodations” until Dec. 1, 2020. (Translation: No more ordinances like the one Charlotte passed last year that prompted all this for more than three years.)
