HB 173, which we have written about before, heads to a vote before the Georgia House of Representatives today. The legislation dramatically changes the way Georgia court's will review restrictive covenants (non-competes, non-solicitation agreements) and fixes the time limit imposed on confidentiality restrictions (eliminating the two-year restriction).

If the bill does not pass today, it is my understanding that it will not be given any further consideration this session.
