The first public news from the annual meeting, shows ALEC still making headway, despite the slight rise in negative press.
"Recently leaked documents from the ALEC Board Meeting, Aug. 6, 2013, Chicago, Illinois, list the number and percentage of each state's legislature that have signed onto ALEC. Under "# of Legislators," and "# of ALEC Members," Iowa has 150 in each column, and South Dakota has 105 in each column. The third column, for both states, shows the "% of ALEC Membership in Legislature" as being "100%." At the opposite end, the lowest percentage is 1%, in New York. The second-lowest is New Jersey, 2%. The third and fourth lowest, tied, are just 4%, in both Maine and Vermont. The fifth-lowest is New Hampshire, 6%. That table appears on page 39 of the report."
ALEC, destroying Democracy, one state at a time.
For the good of YOUR corporations. Buy into ALEC today, and don't let pesky Democracy get in the way of your profit stream.
