WHAT IS ALEC?**The acronym means American Legislative Exchange Council and what they are exchanging is YOUR rights for their legislation often handwritten by companies and handed directly to legislators without constituents' interests in consideration at all. Please go to the ALEC FAQ page for more information to make your calls.
WHY IS THIS BAD FOR ALL AMERICANS?Through ALEC, Global Corporations Are Scheming to Rewrite YOUR Rights and Boost THEIR Revenue
Through the corporate-funded American Legislative Exchange Council, global corporations and state politicians vote behind closed doors to try to rewrite state laws that govern your rights. These so-called "model bills" reach into almost every area of American life and often directly benefit huge corporations. In ALEC's own words, corporations have "a VOICE and a VOTE" on specific changes to the law that are then proposed in your state. DO YOU?
