The North Carolina Office of State Personnel has removed from its web site an online copy of its personnel handbook, which included a ban on anti-gay discrimination.
North Carolina Representative and Republican House Minority Leader Paul Stam questioned what the ban was doing there when North Carolina law does not prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
The State Personnel Commission sought to add the prohibition to the handbook in January, but the state regulatory panel refused, saying lawmakers needed to approve the ban before the state changed its policies.
