(from Alecwatch.org)

ALEC pursues its mission chiefly by generating and promoting hundreds of "model" bills, resolutions, and policy statements every year. The state lawmakers said to be "members" of ALEC seem to have little or no real control over the inner workings of the organization. ALEC's "private-sector members" - three hundred corporate sponsors each paying tens of thousands of dollars a year - appear to run the show, from financing the organization and selecting the issues it pushes, to exercising veto power over policy positions.

These corporate underwriters initiate legislation that is drafted with help from ALEC's staff, approved as "model" bills by the organization's board, and then introduced by ALEC's legislator "members" in state capitals from coast to coast.


During the 1999 and 2000 state legislative sessions alone, more than 450 pieces of legislation based on ALEC's "model" bills were enacted into law.

The corporations and trade associations that finance virtually all of ALEC's activities have used it to mount a wide-ranging assault against laws safeguarding public health, the environment, weaken gun control laws, and bolster insurance companies in their fight to insure only the healthy.

ALEC exploits a weakness of state legislatures. Forty-one states have only part-time legislators, and 33 of those have no paid legislative staff. Knowing that short-handed, busy lawmakers are ill-equipped to write their own legislation, ALEC provides it ready-made. Result? Lawmakers introduce then pass bills that strip rights and protections from citizens, and fattens the bottom line of its member organizations.

Doesn't that make you mad? For more ALEC facts, go to ALECwatch.org or write us at: info@alecbs.com
