RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - More than a dozen trade associations have written North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory telling him a new law denying anti-discrimination protections is causing business to rethink locating and operating in the state.

The letter from the National Association of Manufacturers and others says dictating what bathrooms transgender people can use also could prevent businesses from hiring talented LGBT workers and skilled young people who might be offended by the law.

The letter asks McCrory and lawmakers to consider changing or repealing the law passed earlier this year.

The legality of the measure in now in the courts, and McCrory says he plans to let the federal courts decide if the law stands.
