NC moves toward ending transgender bathroom dispute – CNNPolitics.com:

“The Charlotte city council voted to rescind its controversial ‘Non-Discrimination Ordinance’ that allowed transgender people to use the bathroom that corresponded to their gender identity, the council announced on Monday.

The city council apparently voted to repeal the ordinance as part of an exchange. In return, the state Legislature — held by the GOP — promised to hold a special session on Tuesday to repeal its similarly controversial House Bill 2, or ‘bathroom bill,’ that required individuals statewide to use the bathroom corresponding with the gender identity listed on their birth certificate. The statewide ordinance had been passed in response to the Charlotte city ordinance.”
