LANSING - Today citizen’s group Progress Michigan announced that over 8,800 Michigan residents have signed an online petition calling on General Motors to drop its membership with the controversial American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). In recent weeks, corporations including Amazon, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Kraft, McDonald’s, and Procter & Gamble have all dropped their memberships with ALEC, a lobbying front group that gives corporations a “VOICE and VOTE” in shaping “model bills” for state legislators to submit as their own.

“GM is leading Michigan’s economic turnaround, but now it’s time for GM to show real leadership by dropping its ALEC membership,” said Zack Pohl, Executive Director of Progress Michigan. “Citizens are calling on GM to cut ties with this controversial corporate bill mill, which is responsible for pushing ‘Stand Your Ground’ gun laws and voter suppression legislation in state capitols across the country. It’s time for GM to drop its ALEC membership and focus on what it does best - building great cars and trucks.”
