What Matters-Rep. Chuck McGrady-Monday, February 27, 2017-20 Minutes

Mark brings on Rep. Chuck McGrady, (R-Henderson), to discuss, HB 186, his HB 2 repeal bill which has picked up Republican and Democrat cosponsors. McGrady explains the provisions of the bill, and talks about the non-discrimination provisions mirroring that of the provisions already in place by the Federal government and what allowances there are in the bill for municipalities to broaden their non-discrimination provisions through a process of steps that must be taken, including giving citizens the opportunity to petition for a referendum. McGrady says that Gov. Cooper is making efforts to influence Democrats to not support the bill, attempting to undo the bipartisan support which McGrady says is essential for the bill to pass.
