San Francisco Mayor Bans City Employees from Traveling to N.C.

This just in, from WNCN:

San Francisco mayor Edwin Lee has banned city employee travel to North Carolina after the state passed House Bill 2 this week.

The North Carolina General Assembly on Wednesday overrode a Charlotte ordinance set to take effect April 1 that impacts transgender people and Governor Pat McCrory signed the bill Wednesday night.

“We are standing united as San Franciscans to condemn North Carolina’s new discriminatory law that turns back the clock on protecting the rights of all Americans including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals,” Lee said in a statement. “Effective immediately, I am directing City Departments under my authority to bar any publicly funded city employee travel to the state of North Carolina that is not absolutely essential to public health and safety.”

It was not immediately clear how many trips Lee’s decision might impact.

Holy crap.
