ALEC in Arizona: The Voice of Corporate Special Interests in the Halls of Arizona's Legislature

April 20, 2013



ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council, serves as a voice for corporate special interests in state legislatures across the country , including Arizona . Through ALEC, corporate lobbyists draft, vote on, lobby for, and secure passage of a wide array of ALEC - approved bills designed to promote corporate interests. Numerous ALEC legislators vote as equals with corporate lobbyists and special interest group representatives on ALEC “model” bills , during ALEC task force meetings held behind closed doors at fancy resorts, and then use their elective offices and leadership positions in statehouses to get the ALEC agenda made into binding state law.
