Obama admin threatens to withhold billions from North Carolina over bathroom privacy law

According to LifeSiteNews:

The Obama Administration is making noises about cutting North Carolina off from federal funding after last month’s legislative move by the governor and some state lawmakers to protect the state’s residents’ privacy and safety.

Administration officials announced Friday they were reviewing whether the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act overturning a Charlotte city ordinance allowing men to use women’s restrooms and showers should result in the federal government withholding funding for schools, highways and housing, to the tune of billions of dollars.

Experts have indicated that such an extreme step was not likely, at least not right away, according to The Charlotte Observer, but the administration’s review is sending a message to North Carolina that there could be consequences for its new law.
