The Massachusetts legislature ended its session without taking action on competing bills limiting non competition agreements in the House and Senate.   This is probably a good thing because the discussion regarding the bills has not been substantive. The venture capital industry supporting a limitation and the business community opposing the limitation have both resorted to specious arguments.   I discuss the pros and cons of eliminating or limiting non competes in my posts of June 25, 2015 and September 14, 2013 below.
