In the news this morning, North Carolina lawmakers have repealed the controversial 'bathroom bill' a year after it was passed in 2016.  Gov. Roy Cooper signed the bill into law just hours after the state's House passed the bill 70-48 on Thursday afternoon after nearly two hours of heated debate. The Governor noted that the law had stained North Carolina's reputation and that it had discriminated against the people of North Carolina in addition to causing great economic harm in many communities. The ACLU criticized the deal leading up to the repeal, noting that the compromise reinforces the worst aspects of the law.
