North Carolina's Controversial Law Won't Deter NFL's Big Meeting
Several companies have cut ties in North Carolina since the state passed what critics say is "anti-LGBT" legislation.By Matt Moreno | April 7, 2016
The NFL owners meeting is scheduled for next month in Charlotte, North Carolina, and it appears it'll stay that way.
The North Carolina bill some say is "anti-LGBT" has received plenty of criticism since it passed in late March. The law requires transgender people in schools and public facilities to use the bathroom of the sex on their birth certificates instead of the gender they identify with.
"I signed that bill because if I didn't on April the first of this year, the expectation of privacy for North Carolina citizens would be violated," Gov. Pat McCrory explained.
