Arkansas legislature, take note: North Carolina losing business thanks to bathroom bill

Posted By on Fri, Jul 22, 2016 at 2:58 PM



Meant to mention this yesterday but got swept up in all the political happenings: the National Basketball Association is reportedly pulling the 2017 All Star Game out of Charlotte, North Carolina because of the state's bathroom law targeting transgender people. 

There has been talk that such a bill may be proposed in the Arkansas legislature next year despite the potential for a backlash from the business community.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
