Lawmakers in the U.S. state of North Carolina have reached an agreement to repeal a controversial law setting rules on which bathrooms transgender people can use in public buildings.The new deal to repeal the law was struck late Wednesday by Republican lawmakers and the state's Democratic governor.It strikes the rule on transgender people having to use restrooms that correspond to the gender on their birth certificate.It was an anti-discrimination ordinance in the city of Charlotte that touched off the whole spat in February 2016 . That rule allowed transgender people to use the restroom of their choice.Cathryn Oakley, a lawyer for the Human Rights Campaign, said the agreement means lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people will have no statewide anti-discrimination ordinance.
