This just in: Bathroom bill finally circles the bowl
North Carolina Republican lawmakers said late on Wednesday they had reached a deal to repeal the state’s controversial law prohibiting transgender people from using restrooms in accordance with their gender identities.
The compromise, reached with Democratic Governor Roy Cooper and set to go before the legislature for a vote Thursday morning, would still ban local municipalities, schools and others from regulating bathroom access.
It would also effectively forbid cities from offering their own job and restroom protections to vulnerable groups for nearly four years.[…]
The compromise with Cooper, a staunch opponent of the bathroom law, was reached hours before the state was reportedly set to lose its ability to host any NCAA basketball championships.
It’s the threatened NCAA boycott being the breakthrough that makes this the most stereotypical North Carolina story possible. The only way to turn up the level of tarheel from here is to reveal that the December vote broke down because the floor kept breaking out in arguments about what qualifies as real barbecue.
Rest assured that if they figure out a way to screw it up this time, you’ll hear it here.
