Thursday, North Carolina House of Representatives passed a bill to repeal the state’s controversial bathroom law with a 70-48 vote.
Gov. Roy Cooper, who has stated previously that he supports the repeal, is expected to sign the bill soon.
While the the repeal would effectively strip the original HB2 bill, LGBT activists still criticize the bill, saying that it doesn’t effectively protect Transgender citizens from discrimination.
They’ve noted several parts of the compromise bill that aren’t beneficial, including keeping bathroom regulation in the legislature’s hands.
