A message from PFAW:
When state legislators across the nation introduce
similar or identical bills designed to boost
corporate power and profits, reduce workers rights,
limit corporate accountability for pollution, or restrict
voting by minorities, odds are good that the legislation
was not written by a state lawmaker but by corporate lobbyists working through the American Legislative Exchange Council. ALEC is a one-stop shop for corporations looking to identify friendly state
legislators and work with them to get special-interest legislation introduced.
PFAW Foundation this month released a report
exposing ALEC and its role behind some of the most extreme recent right-wing state legislation.
