California will continue to ban state-funded travel to North Carolina, after lawmakers in that state repealed its controversial “bathroom bill”—but replaced it with another.
The California Attorney General’s Office says North Carolina will remain on an official list of states that discriminate against people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.
North Carolina initially made the list because of a state law that pared back local LGBT anti-discrimination ordinances and—what made the most news—barred transgender people from using the bathrooms of the gender they identify with.
While the state’s Legislature technically repealed that law last month, its replacement leaves the ban in place for at least the next four years.
Other states on the California banned list are: Kansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
