House Legislators to file House Bill 2 Repeal on Monday
Press Conference to follow immediately at 11:00 am in the NCGA pressroom

RALEIGH, NC – On Monday morning, Representatives Darren Jackson, Graig Meyer, Susi Hamilton, and Grier Martin will file a bill to repeal House Bill 2 (Public Facilities Privacy Act) in its entirety.

Last month, North Carolina Republicans pushed through a bill in a one day Special Session. It took less than 12 hours from the time NC Republican House leaders released the bill to members and the public until the Governor signed the controversial legislation. The damage to NC’s reputation and economy has been swift and is growing exponentially. House Bill 2 is bad for all NC citizens and it is bad for all NC businesses.

As part of this effort, Representatives Darren Jackson (D-Wake), Graig Meyer (D-Orange), Susi Hamilton (D-New Hanover) and Grier Martin (D-Wake) will hold a joint press conference on Monday at 11:00 am in the NCGA pressroom to further explain beginning the effort to repeal House Bill 2.

The press conference will be open to all media as well as to the general public.
