If you didn’t already know – as part of the failed re-branding attempt of the American Legislative Exchange Council – they have renamed their private sector BOARD to an ADVISORY COUNCIL.
Doesn’t matter what they call them, the Board/Advisory Council – facilitates the private sector writing legislation and then handing it off to ALEC state legislators to implement in YOUR state.
Considering ALEC’s PUSH for privatization of everything – because the private sector supposedly does such a damn good job – better, more economically (according to ALEC) – here’s snip about a failure that ALEC legislators should take into consider.
This is a sample of the companies, sitting on the ALEC renamed private sector board - “advising” ALEC state legislators – god forbid!!!

Energy Future Holdings Corp., the power producer that was taken private six years ago in the largest leveraged buyout, proposed a pre-packaged bankruptcy that would put Texas Competitive Electric Holdings, which sells power on wholesale markets, and some other units in Chapter 11.
Energy Future’s losses may widen as hedging contracts used to shield against fluctuations in gas prices disappear by the end of 2014. Energy Future lost $3.36 billion last year, 76 percent more than its $1.91 billion net loss in 2011, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
