House committee passes bill to repeal city sick leave ordinances

The cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul have recently passed sick leave ordinances. A bill that passed the House Job Growth and Energy Affordability Policy and Finance Committee 13-9 would undo those city laws.

Erin Golden of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

The proposal, introduced by Rep. Pat Garofalo, R-Farmington, would prohibit cities from enacting ordinances that would mandate a higher minimum wage, paid sick leave or other types of leave or requirements about scheduling workers.

Garofalo said his intent with the bill was to avoid a patchwork of regulations around the state.
