ALEC Legislation - Under consideration right now

Notes ALEC 37th Annual Meeting

ALEC Task Forces also met and worked to approve new model bills and resolutions, summaries of which are presented on the following pages.

Constitutional Convention Amendment
This resolution urges the Congress of the United States to call a Constitutional Convention pursuant to Article V of the U.S. Constitution to propose a constitutional amendment permitting repeal of any federal law or regulation by a vote of two-thirds of the state legislatures. The delegates to such a convention should be selected according to procedures established by the legislatures of several states.  (Source:  Inside ALEC | September/October 2010)

This ALEC created legislation is under consideration at multiple State legislatures – here are a few that I found.
          Under consideration in Utah Legislature – HJR 2
          Passed the Viriginia Assembly as House Joint Resolution 542
          Under consideration in Utah

Don't you see how inherently wrong this is?
This is WRONG!
This is NOT democracy!

As citizens we should not be paying legislators to participate in ALEC “educational” sessions with Coors, Koch, AT&T , Wal-Mart and other private sector companies, sitting around the table drafting, deliberating and approving model legislation for our states and our country -  “model legislation” such as the “Supermajority Act Act”.

Over 2,000 members of State Legislators belong to ALEC. 
84 members of the US House and Senate are “Alumni” of ALEC.

Please request the elimination of any and all state and federal funding for state or federal legislators to belong to ALEC, to attend ALEC events and to buy products or publications sold by ALEC.

Founded in 1973, ALEC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that promotes free-market principles through “model legislation,” developed by its public- and private-sector members in eight Task Forces:  (Source:   ALEC-Laffer State Economic Competitiveness Index - 2009 American Legislative Exchange Council)
