Tell ALEC Members They're Not OK
ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council, is bringing its anti-worker agenda to Oklahoma City on May 2-3 at its “Spring Task Force Summit.” At the summit, corporations, political contributors and state lawmakers will meet behind closed doors. The corporations will give lawmakers copies of the legislation they want to empower CEOs and billionaires while undermining democracy, weakening workers’ rights, eradicating public education and eliminating environmental and consumer protections.
Lawmakers will leave Oklahoma City with the corporate proposals in hand. They will introduce them in statehouses across the country as their own. They will not reveal corporations drafted the bills.
Corporations such as Koch Industries fund almost all of ALEC’s operations and are equal members to state legislators. They sit on all nine ALEC task forces. ALEC boasts that it has over 1,000 bills introduced by legislative members every year, with one in every five of them enacted into law.
