The North Carolina General Assembly will call a special session Wednesday, March 23, to address Charlotte, N.C.’s expanded LGBT non-discrimination ordinance.
Moore claims he received three-fifths of the House and Senate members to agree to such a session. Gov. Pat McCrory, therefore, will not need to call the session. McCrory had previously stated his opposition to the transgender locker room and bathroom protections in the ordinance, but also said that he was not in favor of calling a special session.
Equality NC Executive Director Chris Sgro tweeted out he following upon hearing the news that the General Assembly would go ahead with the $42,000 a day special session.

The expanded ordinance, which offers protections from discrimination for the LGBT community in Charlotte, is set to go into effect April 1. The General Assembly is scheduled to hold a regular session on April 25.
