A controversial North Carolina law limiting the rights of transgender citizens could end up being repealed now that the city ordinance that prompted it has been dropped.

FOX's Eben Brown has details:

That infamous North Carolina 'Bathroom Bill' could be done away with. Outgoing North Carolina governor Pat McCrory is calling a special session of the state legislature to repeal it, now that the city of Charlotte rescinded its original ordinance demanding transgender persons be allowed to use public restrooms of their gender identities.  

The state law's supporters aimed to protect private business with religious convictions, in addition to concerns of public restroom safety. It was widely viewed as discriminatory and lead some organizations and artists to pull events out of the state. McCrory insists the matter was purely a political one on the part of Democrats.
