If by plan-stamping, you mean applying your stamp to plans done by 
another engineer who was not operating under your direct supervision, 
it's definitely illegal in Florida and Minnesota and can cost you your 
license. You can take that to the bank.

If by plan-stamping you mean taking over the work of another engineer 
after verifying all the background calculation and design bases, Florida 
has rules for doing it, and I think it's possible in Minnesota, although 
there aren't specific rules.
