in 10 hours from start to finish the republican dominated legislature of north carolina, with the approval of their republican governor, made it against the law for cities in north carolina to enact anti-discrimination ordinances protecting the civil rights of lgbt people. the law also mandates restrooms are restricted to use by single genders determined by the birth certificate gender of the individual. the law also makes it impossible for cities to pass their own minimum wage standards. what a country!
