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?
ALEC boasts on its website that over 2,000 state legislators are members of their organization. ALEC Exposed has identified nearly 1,000 state representatives who are believed to be active members of ALEC. We need YOUR help to identify all ALEC members.
ALEC is working to ensure that public education dollars get diverted to private for-profit corporations such as K-12, Inc. Their approach is working -- for them. Not so much for the students who pay the price in the form of a subpar education and poor performance.
PBS's respected "Moyers & Company" show follows up on a breakthrough 2012 report about ALEC.
