Human Rights Council asks PBC to ban travel to NC

The Palm Beach County Human Rights Council has asked Palm Beach County to follow West Palm Beach’s lead in banning official travel to North Carolina to protest that state’s passage of a law many have described as discriminatory to the LGBT community.

On Monday, West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio banned city employees from traveling to North Carolina on official business.

HRC President Rand Hoch asked County Administrator Verdenia Baker to follow suit, describing the North Carolina law as “clearly unconstitutional.”

Commissioner Priscilla Taylor brought Hoch’s request to the County Commission on Tuesday, and Baker said she’ll have her staff look into it.
