Here is some information about the ALEC panel at NN:

"Whose Law Is It Anyway? ALEC's Influence on State Legislatures and What We Can Do About It"

The American Legislative Exchange Council has been behind innumerable controversial state laws in recent years, including union-busting, teacher-bashing, voter suppression, attacks on immigrants, privatizing basic public services and gutting environmental and health regulations. Learn more about ALEC, who backs them and what you can do to stand in their way.

We also wanted to let you know that we are in the process of revising the navigation of the site. Each of the substantive topics on the left sidebar of this page is a link to some of our key analysis about the "model" bills in those topic areas. We are working to make those analytical materials CMD prepared when it launched ALEC exposed in July 2011 easier to find and download. In the meantime, you can find more information on each of the topics of the left, by clicking the link and scrolling down.
