Repeal of "bathroom bill" stalled in NC statehouse

More: CNBC

The political tug of war over North Carolina's notorious "bathroom bill" heated up Wednesday with efforts to overturn the nine-month-old law stalemated by ongoing partisan bickering.
The law, which dictates which bathroom transgender people must use, has damaged the state's economy and national reputation.
In a special session called by GOP Gov. Pat McCrory, legislators returned to the capitol in Raleigh to vote on a repeal of House Bill 2, which has been blasted by gay-rights groups and sparked job losses and sporting event cancellations.

The repeal vote was expected after the Charlotte City Council eliminated a local antidiscrimination ordinance that expanded protections to include sexual orientation and gender identity in public accommodations. Statehouse Republicans had offered months ago to repeal the state law if Charlotte rescinded the local ordinance, which the council voted to eliminate earlier Wednesday.
