Representative Butler on WHQR

On Monday, March 23, 2017, Representative Deb Butler, NC House District 18, sat down for an exclusive one hour interview with WHQR's Rachel Lewis Hilburn, host of the local news program Coastline.  Topics ranged from education, Governor Cooper's budget, immigration, and working with other members of the local delegation in Raleigh.

When asked about teacher pay, Butler responded, "When you know a veteran high school teacher who has to wait tables on Saturday night to make ends meet, that is unconscionable."

Butler Co-Sponsors HB2 Repeal Bill

RALEIGH, NC (AP/WECT) - State Representative Deb Butler joined Democrat colleagues in the General Assembly Thursday in filing a bill calling for a statewide LGBT anti-discrimination ordinance.
The bill would also repeal House Bill 2, also known as the bathroom bill, which requires people to use the bathroom that is lined up with the gender on their birth certificate among other things. 
Democrats urged lawmakers to move quickly on the repeal proposal at a news conference Thursday. The proposed bill would extend protected status for housing, employment, credit, insurance, public accommodations and education to the LGBT community. Currently there are discrimination protections for people based on race, color, national origin, religion, age, disability, sex, marital status, familial status and military or veteran status.   
Earlier this week, Butler replaced Susi Hamilton as the State Representative for District 18, parts of New Hanover and parts of Brunswick County after Hamilton resigned to take a position in Governor Cooper's cabinet.  Butler is one of two openly gay representatives in Raleigh.
