A Snowball Chance.

You know the saying, well this bill in North Carolina has that much of a chance in passing.
Bill to repeal anti-transgender NC law sent to committee that never meets

State Senate Democrats’ proposal to repeal House Bill 2 appears to be dead just a day after it was filed.

On Wednesday, Sens. Jeff Jackson of Charlotte, Terry Van Duyn of Asheville and Mike Woodard of Durham filed Senate Bill 784, which would repeal the controversial LGBT law in its entirety. The bill is identical to one filed Monday by House Democrats.
The three-member Ways and Means Committee hasn’t held a meeting in years. It’s widely known as the graveyard of the Senate – the place where Senate Rules Chairman Tom Apodaca sends legislation that he wants to kill.
Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!

We don’t care what people think of North Carolina, we do not care the businesses are leaving the state, we don’t care that it is another Jim Crow law, we are standing our ground and going down with the ship. It is the principal of it.

Anyone who says that the Republicans are for business, for government that gets off your back, this law puts businesses between a rock and a hard place. If a business obeys the state law in puts them in direct violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and what could be more invasive as checking what is between your legs.
