ALEC - The KochRoach of State Legislatures

 (I added the picture and the emphasis)
I have to confess to being duped along with thousands of well-meaning present and former state legislators around the country by ALEC. The American Legislative Exchange Council sent me a slick, bound book loaded with draft legislative ideas when I served in the New York State Assembly


I eventually found out that ALEC is like the house guest that never leaves.

I encourage all legislators to learn from my mistake: The next time that ALEC booklet arrives in your office throw it in the recycling bin and save your $100 membership fee.
