HB 2 repealed! NC Senate and House give final legislative approval
In a 70-48 vote, the North Carolina House voted this afternoon to pass HB 142, which repeals HB 2. This follows the Senate vote 32-16 in favor of the proposal earlier today. The bill now heads to Governor Roy Cooper, who has indicated he will sign the bill. Cooper and Republican legislative leaders announced the compromise deal to repeal HB 2 last night.
NCRLA commends Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger, House Speaker Tim Moore, members of the North Carolina General Assembly and Governor Roy Cooper for their work and leadership on the bipartisan compromise to repeal HB 2. This issue has been one of the most divisive in our state’s history, and we are thrilled to put this chapter behind us. North Carolina is a state that welcomes all, and the North Carolina hospitality industry looks forward to doing just that.
