American Legislative Exchange Council

Conservative lobbying organization that pushes right-wing model legislation

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is a corporate-funded organization that encourages legislators to introduce and pass right-wing model legislation that advances the interests of its various industry and right-wing foundation members. Examples of these efforts include legislation that weaken labor unions, decrease funding for public education, and the NRA's “stand your ground” law.
