Will North Dakota lawmakers have to disclose lobbyist-funded trips?

Short answer: Not right now.

"North Dakota's Senate on Thursday defeated a bill to require lawmakers to disclose any trips they take that are financed by lobbyists or outside groups, deciding instead to support a broader study of the state's disclosure laws for public officials.
Senators unanimously approved legislation to authorize the study, while voting down the trip-disclosure bill and two other measures on voter eligibility and reporting of campaign contributions and expenses."
