ALEC information
Posted On: Jun 27, 2016

 The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) ALEC is not a lobby group; it is not a front group.  

It is much more powerful than that.

Through ALEC, behind closed doors, corporations hand state lawmakers the legislative language that directly benefits their bottom line. Along with legislators, corporations have membership in ALEC. Corporations sit on all nine ALEC task forces and vote with legislators to approve “model” bills. 

Participating legislators, overwhelmingly conservative Republicans, then bring those proposals home and introduce them in statehouses across the nation—without disclosing that corporations crafted and voted on the bills.

ALEC boasts that it has over 1,000 of these bills introduced by legislative members every year, with one in every five of them enacted into law. ALEC describes itself as a “unique,” “unparalleled” and “unmatched” organization. We agree. They are unmatched in enriching their corporate underwriters at the expense of everyone else.
