The Minnesota State Senate refused to consider a proposal that would require more disclosure from and about groups such as the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), which offers “model legislation” that is often turned into bills by conservatives.

A procedural motion that prevented a vote on the proposal went along party lines with Republicans effectively voting against the anti-ALEC bill and Democrats effectively voting for it.
