“The Chamber’s position on LGBT issues has remained consistent since it first opposed Amendment One in 2012,”  said Bill Brian, immediate past chairman of the Chamber Board and present chairman of the Chamber’s Public Policy Committee.  “The Chamber always has been supportive of the LGBT community and civil rights in general, and believes that discrimination is bad for business.  Further, discrimination of any kind is inconsistent with Durham’s community ethos.  With regard to this specific legislation, the Chamber’s Public Policy Committee will review the HB2-Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, at its April meeting.”
