Minn. Bill Would Ban Workers From Violent Hotel Porn

ST. PAUL, Minn. — A state senator is proposing legislation that would ban state employees traveling on business from staying at hotels that offer violent, pay-per-view porn.

According to USAToday.com, Democratic Senator Tarryl Clark of St. Cloud proposed the legislation.

The bill, however, would not include non-violent sex videos. It’s not clear who would screen the movies and how the state would define “violence.”

Under the proposal, Minnesota would establish a list of approved hotels where employees can stay. Hotels not on the list would be considered as having violent porn.

In 2008, a coalition of groups met with Marriot International officials to urge them to stop offering porn in hotel rooms.
