Is there other precedence where the SOA has taken a stand on a social issue like this?

If you've already commented on this I apologize, but given your previous positions with the SOA, how do you feel about the SOA taking positions not just on this issue, but social stances in general. Do you find it appropriate?

Not in the slightest. Actuarial organizations may want to take positions on issues where actuaries have particular expertise, but they should not venture into areas where actuaries are nothing more than ordinary citizens.

110% agree with this.

Social Security and Medicare is one thing. Bathroom bills is another entirely.

Update on attempt to repeal. . .

A supposedly bipartisan deal to repeal North Carolina's anti-LGBT law collapsed when both sides balked and started blaming each other, likely meaning the state will remain a pariah shunned by corporations, entertainers and high-profile sporting events.
