Uh, it is the current policy of the Attorney General and DOJ. The DOJ currently litigates consistent with that policy. Loretta Lynch is an Obama appointee and arguably even more of an advocate of LGBT rights than Holder.

Lynch also noted — to the applause of the audience — the Justice Department now interprets the gender protections in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act to cover anti-trans discrimination.
Lynch says country in 'national awakening' on LGBT rights

Does anyone have the actual language of the Charlotte ordinance additions that were approved in February? I can't seem to find it.

Wrong.

Check the Civil Rights Act of 1965.

Check the Fair Housing Act.

Check the Equal Opportunity Act.

Good grief.

The GOP is blaming Charlotte's mayor and the "far-left political correctness mob" for losing PayPal.

I said it makes it illegal for anyone to sue their employer under state law. As far as I know the state of North Carolina does not have the power to limit suits brought in Federal Court or I'm sure they would have tried to do that, too.

It's a horrible law with far reaching implications including much broader LGBT issues than bathrooms and has potential impacts on every person in North Carolina regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity and it will be struck down. The bathroom thing is a complete Trojan Horse.

The law prohibits local municipalities from establishing their own minimum wage, for example. It's just one more example of this terrible power-hungry legislature grabbing control from local authorities like they tried to do with Charlotte's airport and Asheville's water supply. Whatever happened to small-government Republicans? This is not the Republican party the way it used to be.

About half the States have no state level protection for LGBT people. However, pretty much every state has city/local jurisdictions that have passed anti-discrimination laws for LGBT.
