N.C. SLIPS IN RANKINGS

Paul Fogleman,

Over the past decade CNBC business channel has ranked North Carolina first or second as “the best state for business.” This year Utah ranked the best, with Texas the second best. North Carolina was fifth. The judges for the CNBC poll said North Carolina would have ranked second had it not been for the “bathroom bill.” The reference was to provisions in House Bill 2 that restricts use of public restrooms by transgender people. Major corporations are among the 68 businesses which have signed petitions calling for repeal of the provision in the bill.
