ALEC Issue Alerts

 

This page contains links to “Issue Alerts”, sent to ALEC’s state legislator members, expressing ALEC’s support or opposition to policies and bills based on its own model legislation.

 

These materials were included in approximately 4,000 pages of evidence, provided to the IRS as part of Common Cause’s April 2012 IRS whistleblower complaint about ALEC.

 

The purpose of these alerts is clearly to influence legislation. As such, these messages provide direct and unambiguous evidence of ALEC’s lobbying activities. ALEC maintains that none of its activities amount to lobbying, reporting zero dollars in annual lobbying activities to the IRS.
