ST. PAUL (AP) -- One Minnesota lawmaker wants state employees to stay out of hotels with violent porn while traveling for work.

A bill sponsored by Democratic Sen. Tarryl Clark of St. Cloud could prohibit spending public dollars at in-state hotels or meeting facilities that provide their customers with pornographic materials that link sex with violence. Nonviolent adult movies would be OK.

The bill gets a hearing in a Senate committee Wednesday.

The Department of Administration would keep a directory of approved facilities to help employees plan travel.

Advocates say the legislation would help take the state out of a system that supports sexual violence.

The bill offers an exception for employees who can't reasonably find or afford a porn-free hotel.
