The Fight Over North Carolina’s Latest Anti-Trans Law Begins 

It’s been more than a year since North Carolina overturned its anti-trans bathroom law, but activists are going back to court on Monday to fight the law that took its place, the AP reports.

Democratic and Republican lawmakers presented that bill, HB 142, as a compromise after the uproar over HB2, which banned trans people from using bathrooms and public facilities that correspond with their gender identity and overturned and barred local ordinances meant to protect against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Businesses and organizations, including the NCAA, protested the law, costing North Carolina an estimated $525 million in 2017.
