Considering that North Carolina’s transphobic bathroom bill (HB2) has pretty much been a disaster for the state financially and politically, you’d expect to see more politicians like Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin promising not to pursue such bills because they’re a non-issue. And yet, Washington state’s Republican lead House just pre-filed a bill similar to North Carolina’s. The last time they tried it, it died in Senate by just one vote. If they pass it this time, they’ll surely live to regret it.
