North Carolina lawmakers will meet this week to discuss the infamous HB2 law, widely known as the “bathroom bill” which may have contributed to Republican Gov. Pat McCrory’s narrow electoral loss to Governor-elect Roy Cooper. The incoming governor said that legislators will meet on Tuesday to discuss the measure and potentially repeal it. Lawmakers evidently have grown to understand the law’s immense unpopularity and cause of financial loss for the state. Several companies cancelled plans to expand in North Carolina after its passage, and a series of concerts, conventions, and competitions were moved to other locations in protest. The law has been widely recognized as anti-gay and anti-transgender rights. "I hope they will keep their word to me and with the help of Democrats in the legislature, HB2 will be repealed in full," Cooper said in a statement.
