North Carolina Republican leaders on Thursday said they will not meet Monday's deadline set by the Justice Department to suspend a law which limits bathroom access for transgender people.

We will take no action by Monday,” said Tim Moore, the speaker of the State House of Representatives. “That deadline will come and go.”

The legislative process doesn’t work where a response can be given by just a few days,” he said, “so we’re going to move at the speed that we’re going to move at to look at what our options are at this point.

The Obama administration argues that the law violates the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and could push the federal government to withhold federal aid.

A letter addressed to Republican Gov. Pat McCrory, said that the law was a violation of the Civil Rights Act, and North Carolina was “engaging in a pattern or practice of discrimination against transgender state employees.”

The decision to allow transgender people access to toilets of their new sex has become one of the nation’s most explosive cultural issues.
