After the star of The Bachelor broke up with the season's winner, who is a native of Minnesota, a Minnesota lawmaker wrote a bill banning him from the state.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Arie Luyendyk, the latest star of TV's "The Bachelor," may have found his one true love. But he better not find himself in Minnesota - ever. This week, viewers learned that Arie had broken up with the season's winner, Minnesotan Becca Kufrin. What's more, he proposed to the runner-up on live TV.
