Malloy To North Carolina Business Owners: Come To Connecticut – Hartford Courant

HARTFORD — Billing Connecticut as “welcoming and inclusive” Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy wrote North Carolina business owners this week inviting them to relocate their companies here in the wake of a law critics have said is discriminatory toward the LGBT community.

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, a Republican, signed the anti-discriminatory legislation last week that excludes protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity. He and other proponents of the law focused their attention on an ordinance in Charlotte that allowed transgender people to use the restroom aligned with their gender identity.

The law sends the message that “North Carolina is closed-minded when it comes to human rights and does not celebrate the LGBT community,” Malloy said.

“In our state, your employees and customers would not face such institutional discrimination,” he said.

McCrory said politicians “demonized our state for political gain” and that the legislation was written to “protect men, women and children when they use a public restroom, shower or locker room.”
