REMOVING THE CHARLOTTE ORDNANCE IS CRITICAL.

REPUBLICANS BELIEVE THIS WAS A SAFETY ISSUE.

THAT WAS BO REPORTING.

AS YOU MIGHT IMAGINE THE LGBG COMMITTEE IS KEEPING A CLOSE LOOK ON THE LAW BEING REPEALED.

WHAT ARE THEY SAYING ABOUT THIS? Reporter: THEY CALL THIS A BIG WIN.

THEY HAVE BEEN CALLING ON THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY NOW TO ACT FOR MONTHS AND NOW IT APPEARS THEY MIGHT JUST ACTUALLY DO IT.

I AM CAUTIOUSLY OPTIMISTIC.

CANDIES IS AN OUTSPOKEN WOMAN OF THE BILL.

IT'S INSULTING BECAUSE IT INSINUATES WITH ALL THESE SEXUAL OFFENSES THAT WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO IDENTIFY TRANSGENDER PEOPLE AS BEING THE ONES COMMITTING THOSE CRIMES.

TAXES ON THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS IS THE GROUP'S DIRECTOR AND THE FIRST OPENLY GAY MEMBER OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY.

EVERY DAY THAT GOES BY IS ANOTHER DAY WE'RE NOT ABLE TO BRING THE GAMES BACK AND THEY DON'T THINK ABOUT RELOCATING.

HE'S HEARD FROM SEVERAL MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY.

HE BELIEVES THE PROTEST, THE LOSS OF BUSINESS, SPORTING EVENTS, CONCERTS, ALL ADDED UP.

OTHERS SEE IT IN A DIFFERENT WAY.

FOR THEM, IT WAS ABOUT PROTECTING WOMEN AND GIRLS IN BATHROOMS AND LOCKER ROOMS.

TAMMY FITZGERALD CONTINUES TO DEFEND HB TWO.

IT'S WHAT STANDS BETWEEN THE PEOPLE OF NORTH CAROLINA AND THE VIOLATION OF PRIVACY AND SAFETY AND LIVING OUT THEIR LIVES IN FREEDOM.

THIS LAW HAS HELPED US TO PUT INTO THE FOREFRONT TRANS PEOPLE AND THE ISSUES THAT WE FACE ON THE HOLE HERE IN NORTH CAROLINA.

Reporter: CERTAINLY MIXED OPINIONS ON THIS ONE.

THE SPECIAL SESSION HAS BEEN CALLED FOR WEDNESDAY.

TAMMY SAYING THAT YOU CANNOT PUT THE JENNY BACK IN THE BOTTLE.

MORE ON HER CONCERNS AND WHAT.
