ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- A Minnesota legislator who is also a doctor is working to ban noncompete agreements in the state.
The Minnesota Public Radio News reports that Rep. Alice Mann, (DFL) Lakeville, plans to reintroduce a bill during the legislative session that started on Tuesday.
It is not clear how much support she will get from other lawmakers.
Similar legislation advanced through committees during the last session but never made it to a final vote.
Noncompete agreements are permitted in nearly all of Minnesota's industries, with lawyers being the exception.
A number of states, which include California, Massachusetts and North Dakota, limit them to one degree or another.
