HB2, more colloquially known as the "Bathroom Bill", gained notoriety a year ago for stripping away anti-discrimination protections from the LGBTQ community. Use of such facilities is still the prerogative of the state legislature.

"If we find that our expectations of a discrimination-free environment are not met, we will not hesitate to take necessary action at any time", the board of governors clarified in their statement. "Nondiscrimination laws in North Carolina, even under HB2, have always been similar to 29 other states and 10,000 other multiplicities".
