  •  Nope, this amends our lobbying statute (1+ / 0-)

    and focuses on the nasty little deeds of the so-called "non-lobbyist" American Legislative Exchange Council..

    I just included the amended parts of Minnesota Statutes 2012, section 10A.01, subdivision 21, in my diary -  earlier (in the original text of the bill) it states:

    (b) "Lobbyist" does not include:
     (1) a public official;
     (2) an employee of the state, including an employee of any of the public higher education systems;
     (3) an elected local official;
    Theses amendments are a direct hit on ALEC - but Section 2 - Subd 25a - could apply to NCSL  also.
