On Wednesday, North Carolina lawmakers passed a bill that overrides local anti-discrimination measures and prohibits transgender people from using certain bathrooms. Republicans introduced the bill in response to a measure recently passed in Charlotte, the largest city in North Carolina.
That law prohibited discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression, according to the New York Times. The Charlotte ordinance also allowed people to use public restrooms based on their gender identity, not their gender listed on their birth certificate.
