Tell Rep. Jimmy Bales to Quit ALEC In recent weeks, the nefarious activities of ALEC have come to light. ALEC stands for the American Legislative Exchange Council, a network of corporations like the Koch Brothers, Big Tobacco, the insurance companies, and the pharmaceuticals, which writes, introduces, and guides bills through state legislatures around the country to benefit these corporate sponsors and shortchange workers and consumers.

ALEC has authored much of the “Stand Your Ground”, anti-union, anti-public education and voter suppression legislation that has been making its way through ...
