Governor McCrory Responds to Letter from Department of Justice

Press Release:

    Raleigh, N.C.     Governor Pat McCrory issued the following statement in response to the letter received today from the U.S. Department of Justice regarding HB2:

  • "A claim by the Obama administration charges that one part of House Bill 2, which requires state employees in public government buildings and students in our universities to use a restroom, locker room and shower facility that match their biological sex, is now in violation of federal law. The Obama administration has not only staked out its position for North Carolina, but for all states, universities and most employers in the U.S.
  • "The right and expectation of privacy in one of the most private areas of our personal lives is now in jeopardy. We will be reviewing to determine the next steps."
