Jane Wettach: Backtracking Moore

Regarding the July 2 news article “Legislature repeals one portion of HB2”: House Speaker Tim Moore said with regard to House Bill 2, “There was never an intent to limit the right of anybody to seek redress in state court.”

Given that HB2 very explicitly, in no uncertain terms, completely eliminated the right of anybody to sue in state court to get redress for unlawful discrimination, there are only two possible interpretations of Moore’s comment: The legislature passed the law without knowing what it said or he is lying. I wonder which one he claims.
