'Bathroom bill' gone, but California keeping ban on travel to North Carolina

Attorney General Xavier Becerra won’t lift a ban on publicly funded travel to North Carolina even though the Southern state repealed the law that California Democrats condemned as discriminatory against gay and transgender people.

North Carolina’s repeal of its House Bill 2, the so-called “bathroom bill,” late last month persuaded the NCAA to lift its own ban on sponsoring championship collegiate sporting events there.

Becerra found the repeal inadequate, noting that North Carolina’s new law bans local governments and universities from passing their own anti-discrimination laws. A number of civil rights organizations, such as Equality California, denounced North Carolina’s repeal of HB 2 for the same reason.

Led by Assemblyman Evan Low, D-Campbell, the Legislature last year adopted a ban on taxpayer-funded travel to states with laws that allow exemptions to anti-discrimination laws. North Carolina was one of four states that landed on California’s no-go list this year.
