North Carolina lawmakers have overturned Charlotte’s anti-discrimination ordinance, and have barred other local governments from passing similar regulations. The move forces cities in North Carolina to require bathrooms or locker rooms be designated for use only by people based on their biological sex. Meanwhile in Georgia, the governor has more than a month to decide whether to veto a measure offering protections to faith-based entities refusing to provide services based on religious beliefs. Critics say the measure promotes discrimination. Companies like Disney and the NFL have threatened to pull work from the state if the measure passes.
