CED has been following HB2 closely and has received feedback from our members about how the legislation may or may not affect their businesses. As a non-profit, 501(c)3, CED is prevented from advocating for or against public policy. CED does, however, view with concern any issue that may prevent North Carolina entrepreneurs from growing a successful company in the state. We will be monitoring the situation as it develops, provide information to our membership, and continue to work tirelessly to create opportunities for entrepreneurial companies in North Carolina to thrive and succeed.
*HB2 was addressed by the North Carolina General Assembly on March 30, 2017. Learn more about the recent legislative action, and its implications for businesses in North Carolina, here.
