Lake Norman Chamber Member: Most people agree that the unintended consequences of HB2 has had a dramatic economic impact as well as created a negative national perception of North Carolina. While HB 142 is not a perfect solution, it does allow our state an opportunity to reset and begin a healing process for our state. The Lake Norman Chamber is grateful to our elected leadership, regardless of their position on this issue, which ensures North Carolina remains a great place to live, work, and conduct business.
