RALEIGH, North Carolina (WTVD) - It's been one year since House Bill 2 became the most famous and infamous piece of legislation in North Carolina.

The controversial law gained national attention for requiring transgender people to use multi-stall restrooms in public buildings that correspond to the sex on their birth certificates and blocks expansion of LGBT rights in local ordinances and state law.

Since passing, a lot has happened.

The state has seen economic boycotts, national protests, the loss of college and pro sports events and ultimately a change in governorship, all of which can be traced back to the so-called "bathroom bill."

Governor Roy Cooper has repeatedly talked about the urgency to repeal HB2.
