North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory took steps Tuesday to amend a so-called "anti-LGBT" law.
"I'm taking action to affirm the state's commitment to privacy and equality. To that end, today I've signed an executive order with the goal of achieving that fine balance," McCrory said.
In a video message, McCrory said he wanted to clarify the intent of the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, which previously said people must use bathrooms that match the sex on their birth certificate.
