BY ZACH FORD  for Think Progress |   After deliberating all morning and into the afternoon in a closed caucus session, the North Carolina Republican lawmakers came up with a plan to repeal the anti-LGBT law HB2. The only problem with their plan is that it does not entirely repeal HB2 as promised.

The bill they’ve filed (SB4) does repeal HB2, including its restrictions mandating what bathrooms transgender people may use. However, it also creates a “Six-Month Cooling-Off Period,” in which no municipality in the state may pass any laws related to employment or public accommodations, specifically noting “access to restrooms, showers, or changing facilities.”
