(Olympia, WA)  --  Governor Jay Inslee's ban on travel to North Carolina for Washington state employees is back in effect.  Inslee initially banned non-emergency travel by state employees to North Carolina last year after that state passed a law requiring people to use restrooms and some other public facilities based on biology, not on gender identity.  The original ban lapsed after the law was repealed earlier this year, but North Carolina lawmakers later passed a new law pre-empting nondiscriminatory ordinances by local governments and stating sexual orientation and identity are not protected classes.  Inslee responded by reinstating the travel ban, saying "Washingtonians traveling to North Carolina on work-related matters may still experience discrimination."
