Inslee Bans State Travel To North Carolina Over Transgender Law

(Olympia, WA)  --  Governor Jay Inslee is ordering Washington state employees not to travel on state business to North Carolina.  The governor says that state's new law, which prohibits schools from allowing transgender students use restrooms that match their gender identity, is discriminatory.  Inslee says the policy promoted by North Carolina isn't in line with Washington state's values.  The travel ban applies to cabinet-level agencies that fall under the governor's authority, but doesn't apply to agencies run by independently-elected officials.
