A controversial law in North Carolina that targets the LGBT community has spurred a Minnesota state university system to prohibit athletic teams from traveling to the state.

According to the AP, the decision means that no teams will participate in tournaments held this spring in North Carolina.

Minnesota State Colleges & Universities represents 24 state colleges and 7 state universities.

North Carolina will host the NCAA Division II national baseball tournament and National Junior College Athletic Association Division III World Series.

Last month, Democratic Governor Mark Dayton joined the leaders of a growing number of states and cities in barring state workers from traveling to the state. His order applies to non-essential travel.

Minnesota State Colleges and Universities decided this week “that athletics-related travel is non-essential for the purposes of this directive.”

North Carolina's law blocks cities from enacting LGBT protections and limits the bathroom choices of transgender people in government buildings, including schools.
