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?
This archive contains records about ALEC in several states (OH, FL, WI, AZ, IN) from 2007-2011, obtained through public records requests to ALEC's "public sector chairs," elected officials. Included are records relating to ALEC legislative & corporate members, records detailing ALEC "scholarship fund" disbursements to lawmakers, as well as thousands of pages of email correspondence between lawmakers, ALEC staff, and reps of corporations that finance ALEC.
