PRICE STATEMENT ON GOVERNOR MCCRORY H.B. 2 ANNOUNCEMENT

May 9, 2016
Press Release

“The U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) has acted within its clear authority, as granted by Congress, to enforce the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Governor McCrory’s criticism of DoJ and his call for congressional action is a misguided attempt to deflect blame for actions that have deeply damaged North Carolina’s reputation and threatened billions of dollars of annual federal funding.  H.B. 2 is a state law, passed by the General Assembly and signed by Governor McCrory, and the state bears responsibility for reversing its discriminatory provisions.”
