north carolina's 'bathroom bill' to cost $3.76 billion

Despite Republican assurances that North Carolina's "bathroom bill" isn't hurting the economy, the law limiting LGBT protections will cost the state more than $3.76 billion in lost business over a dozen years, according to an Associated Press analysis.Over the past year, North Carolina has suffered financial hits ranging from scuttled plans for a PayPal facility that would have added an estimated $2.66 billion to the state's economy to a canceled Ringo Starr concert that deprived a town's amphitheater of about $33,000 in revenue. The blows have landed in the state's biggest cities as well as towns surrounding its flagship university, and from the mountains to the coast.North Carolina could lose hundreds of millions more because the NCAA is avoiding the state, usually a favored host.

north carolina republicans announce 'bathroom bill' deal

Protestors gather near the North Carolina state legislative building as they voice their concerns over House Bill 2, in Raleigh, N.C., May 16, 2016.  Al Drago—CQ-Roll Call/Getty Images(RALEIGH, N.C.) — North Carolina Republican lawmakers and Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper said late Wednesday that they have agreed on legislation to resolve a standoff over the state's "bathroom bill" through a replacement measure that still restricts LGBT nondiscrimination protections.GOP leaders announced the new legislation would be debated and voted on Thursday, but it was unclear whether there were enough House and Senate votes to pass it. And leaders of gay rights groups were incensed about the anticipated proposal and vowed political punishment for elected officials who support it.Cooper, who ran successfu

north carolina: 'bathroom law' repeal clears senate

Davis—Getty Images(RALEIGH, N.C.) — A compromise that would repeal North Carolina's contentious "bathroom law" cleared a key hurdle Thursday when senators approved the measure, which is intended to help stem the financial backlash from the law limiting LGBT protections.Not everyone is pleased with the deal between the Republican-controlled Legislature and the Democratic governor. Social conservatives would prefer to have House Bill 2 stay on the books. Gay rights groups believe the replacement bill allows discrimination.Sen. Dan Bishop, a primary sponsor of HB2, denounced the new deal on the Senate floor."This bill is at best a punt, at worst a betrayal of principle," said the Republ

(Chris Sweard/Raleigh News & Observer/TNS via Getty Images) Chris Sweard—Raleigh News & Observer/ Getty Images(RALEIGH, N.C.) — Basketball-mad North Carolina is hoping its move to roll back its "bathroom bill" will help it avoid another costly hit when the NCAA selects four years of championship sites for a variety of sports.College athletics' governing body said that it is deciding this week on locations for tournaments through the spring of 2022 and that it wouldn't award any to North Carolina if the law known as House Bill 2 was still on the books.On Thursday, amid the mounting pressure, North Carolina's Repu

Clay Aiken voiced his support for a deal North Carolina lawmakers reached on Thursday (March 30) to repeal the state's controversial HB2 "bathroom bill" that limited transgender peoples' rights to use restrooms matching their gender identity."Never underestimate the power of college basketball in the state of #NC    - So long #HB2 #HB2Repeal," Aiken tweeted after the state's House passed the bill 70-48 and Democratic Gov.

bathroom bill: former north carolina governor looks for work

Former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory , who was defeated in his reelection campaign this past November, now says he's having trouble finding jobs in the private sector because of the backlash against the state's controversial "bathroom bill.""Even after I left office people are reluctant to hire me, because, ‘oh my gosh, he’s a bigot’ which is the last thing I am,” McCrory said in a podcast on World Radio on March 10. "I'm in some ways actually liberal on some of these issues. I'm a libertarian, on many of these issues but I don't think the city government, a state government, a federal government should be able to tell the private sector what the new definition of 'gender' is.The bill, known as HB2, passed the North Carolina state legislature in 2016, and required people to use the publi

n.c. repeals ‘bathroom bill,’ pre-empts local employment laws

After one controversial year on the books, North Carolina's H.B. 2—requiring transgender individuals to use the bathroom in public buildings that matches the gender indicated on their birth certificates—has been repealed. Both the state House and Senate voted to overturn the law on March 30 and Gov. Roy Cooper (D) quickly signed the bill that undoes the measure.But the bill that rolled back H.B. 2 was a compromise: H.B. 142 now pre-empts all localities from enacting or amending employment law legislation of any kind through Dec. 1, 2020. This pre-emption is not limited to barring local bathroom access statutes or laws prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation, but extends to local minimum-wage laws and ban-the-box ordinances, and "the list goes on," noted Jonathan A.

in north carolina, the end of an error?

It was just last year that city officials in Charlotte approved a broad anti-discrimination measure, which included protections that allowed people to use restrooms consistent with their gender identity. With remarkable speed and efficiency, then-Gov. Pat McCrory (R) and the Republican-led state legislature swiftly approved an LGBT state law, HB 2, to undo what Charlotte had done.GOP officials were woefully unprepared for the culture-war backlash, which by some estimates, ended up costing the state dearly. It also contributed to Pat McCrory losing his job – the Tar Heel State Republican was the only incumbent governor in either party to lose in 2016.The current effort in North Carolina is cleaning up the mess. NBC News confirmed that state policymakers have reached an agreement to repeal t

in north carolina, bathroom law repealed but many not pleased

Atlanta: For a year, it prompted boycotts, demonstrations and economic fallout that helped dethrone a sitting governor. In the end, in a strange and profoundly American collision of polarised politics, big-time sports, commerce and the culture wars, North Carolina's notorious House Bill 2 was finally laid to rest Thursday – although many were left wondering if some of its negative effects might linger.Governor Roy Cooper, a Democrat, signed legislation repealing the law after it was approved by the Republican-controlled legislature. House Bill 2 had restricted the ability of municipalities to enact anti-discrimination policies and required transgender people in government and public buildings to use the bathroom that corresponded with the gender on their birth certificate.

nuclear giant westinghouse files for bankruptcy after costs skyrocketed

Illustration of the AP1000 reactor from Westinghouse bankruptcy filing.WestinghouseShare this storyOn Wednesday, Westinghouse Electric Company, a subsidiary of Japanese company Toshiba, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The company claimed in a court filing that it was losing money on construction projects in South Carolina and Georgia, although it maintained that nuclear fuel and plant servicing operations remained “very profitable.”The construction cost overruns fall on nuclear power plants that would have contained Generation III+ AP1000 reactors, which Westinghouse designed with “passive safety features,” like using gravity and convective cooling, to make them simpler, easier to maintain, and more resistant to earthquakes, plane crashes, or electrical blackouts.

tanning devices cost us healthcare $343 million a year

Tanning devices cost the US $343.1 million a year in medical costs because of the skin cancers their use is associated with, according to a new study published in the Journal of Cancer Policy. In a new study, Dr. Hugh Waters and his colleagues from the University of North Carolina established how prevalent indoor tanning-related skin cancers are in the US, and calculated the costs of these diseases. They estimate that in 2015 there were 263,600 cases of skin cancer that could be attributed to indoor tanning. These cases cost US $343.1 million in medical costs in 2015, and cause a total economic loss of $127 billion over the lifetime of the people affected. The authors conclude that effective policies and strategies are needed to reduce the use of tanning devices, in order to mitigate their

presstv-disaster costs nearly double in 2016: swiss re

Devastating earthquakes, floods, hailstorms and wildfires, along with man-made devastation, helped push global disaster costs to $175 billion (161 billion euros) last year, reinsurer Swiss Re said on Thursday.That was nearly double the 94 billion disasters cost in 2015, the world's number two reinsurer said, adding that only about 30 percent of last year's losses were covered by insurers.At the same time, the human cost of disasters was far lower, with some 11,000 people dying or going missing in catastrophic events in 2016, down from 26,000 a year earlier.The global insurance industry meanwhile covered $54 billion of the total losses last year -- up 42 percent from 2015, Swiss Re said.Both the economic and the insured losses hit their highest level since 2012, due to the soaring number of

counterfeiters, hackers cost us up to $600 billion a year

Counterfeit goods, software piracy and the theft of trade secrets cost the American economy as much as $600 billion a year, a private watchdog says.
In a report out Monday, the Commission on the Theft of American Intellectual Property says the annual losses range from about $225 billion to $600 billion. The theft of trade secrets alone costs the United States between $180 billion and $540 billion annually. Counterfeit goods cost the United States $29 billion to $41 billion annual; pirated software costs an additional $18 billion a year.The findings echo those of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which in 2015 pegged the annual cost of economic espionage by computer hacking at $400 billion.The commission labels China the world's No. 1 culprit.
