North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory has until the end of the day Monday to respond to the Justice Department's warning that his state's controversial bathroom law violates the Civil Rights Act. The new state law requires transgender people use the restroom that corresponds to their biological sex, and the feds say this violates civil rights protections. McCrory has promised he will respond by the deadline, but it's not clear what his response will be. A refusal could spark a federal lawsuit and cost North Carolina hundreds of millions in federal funding. A new poll from CNN found a majority of Americans oppose such bathroom laws.
