North Carolina lawmakers rejected a deal to repeal the state’s controversial bathroom lawon Wednesday, with the state Senate voting it down and the state House adjourning without a vote. The law, which requires transgender people to use public restrooms that match the gender on their birth certificates, has prompted statewide boycotts by entertainers and sports organizations. The repeal’s failure came even though the city of Charlotte upheld its part of the bargain by repealing a local anti-discrimination ordinance that the state law was intended to block. The Senate’s Republican leader, Phil Berger, accused Governor-elect Roy Cooper of sabotaging the proposal. Cooper and other Democrats said Republicans sank the deal by tacking on a six-month moratorium against new local anti-discrimination ordinances.
