UPDATE: The North Carolina state Senate ended a special legislative session called by Gov. Pat McCrory Wednesday night by voting down legislation that would repeal HB2 32-16.
Prior to the vote on Senate Bill 4, Republican Sen. Phil Berger moved to have separate votes on a straight repeal and a proposed “cooling off” period that would have delayed any further local public accommodation laws until the state General Assembly could work out a long-term solution, but Democrats would not agree.
