The Associated Press released a report that projected significant economic costs to the state of North Carolina, as a result of the state passing House Bill 2, which the liberal media called the “bathroom bill.” The projections, albeit ten years in the future, are still only projections.
The bill ensured that public bathroom access is limited to one’s birth gender. But, organizations and businesses, ranging from PayPal to the NCAA, have withdrawn events from the Tarheel State due to political pressure and politically correct culture.
NBC News picked up the AP report and disputed the North Carolinian government’s claim that the economic losses are minimal and will not be as bad as the media claimed:
“All told, the state will have missed out on more than $3.76 billion by the end of 2028. The losses are based on projects that already went elsewhere — so the money won’t be recouped even if the law is struck down in court or repealed.”
“By the end of 2017 alone, the lost business will total more than $525 million.”
