ALEC's Job Creation Act - Open the Yellow Pages.

ALEC’s Article  “Ideas to Create Jobs In States”
Inside ALEC | March 2010

Presented here are some examples of ALEC model legislation, which can make your state more business-friendly and lead to job creation.

Council on Efficient Government Act
This legislation, which is modeled after Governor Jeb Bush’s efforts in Florida, would create a council to outsource current government functions to the private sector. With the President’s stimulus bill, and increases in federal spending, we have seen a large increase in the number of government jobs.

Unfortunately, the private sector has lost millions of jobs since this recession began.  This act would help create private sector jobs and save taxpayers money. This legislation is nothing more then a simple yellow book test, which means if there are businesses in the yellow book that perform a job—the government doesn’t need to compete with them.

What can I say???
This is what happens when our legislators are sitting at the table with private sector companies – writing “model legislation” about job creation.
It speaks for itself.

I’d love to see all of the “ALEC Model Legislation” for job creation, and read them in their entirety…
         but ALEC’s “Model Legislation” is not available for public review or comment.
         Their “model legislation” in it’s entirety is on the password protected “members only” webpage.

Don't you see how inherently wrong this is?

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.
