One thing that is in that PDF is reports from ALEC taskforce directors - where they brag about how many pieces of ALEC legislation has been pushed thru the states and a write-up on that is at Daily Kos.
The snips below are from a documentfrom the ALEC Annual meeting - which was held in August 2013 in Chicago.
What I would like to do is introduce you to some of the other things in that report that would go unnoticed.
At Annual Meeting, the Task Force is releasing a new version of itsTort Reform Boot Camp Guide for State Legislators,now called Lawsuit Reform for Competitive State Economies.
SSDD at ALEC.
During the 2012-2013 state legislative sessions, the Education Task Force followed legislation relating to several ALEC education model policies. Over 40 states introduced ALEC model legislation or model legislation closely resembling ALEC policy, most notably, Next Generation Tax credit Act, Parent Trigger, Virtual Public Schools, Charter Schools, and Special Needs Scholarship act.
They are so proud of the fact that they are destroying public education.
October 2011, We conducted our first international trip since 2008 taking a delegation of four public sector members to Manchester, UK to attend the Conservative Party Conference there.
Hope ALEC didn't sell this that they were representing the US.
I'm sure the State Department didn't monitor this.
October 2011, We conducted our first international trip since 2008 taking a delegation of four public sector members to Manchester, UK to attend the Conservative Party Conference there. 'Last October we conducted an Oil Sands Academy in Alberta, Canada to explore the Keystone XL pipeline issue and Canada's oil sands as an inexpensive and secure energy source that will result in American jobs. Nine legislators from seven states participated, and the sponsors have already expressed an interest in sponsoring a similar academy in late September 2013. The budget and proposal are currently beingreviewed.
In relation to those trips:
Resolution in Support of the Keystone XL Pipeline or similarly worded resolutions have been introduced in at least seven states this year which has helped highlight state support for the project.
You get what you pay for with ALEC.
We have been told by those involved in the negotiation process for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)that our work on ensuring that TPP remain gave negotiators the support they needed to remain steadfast on that commitment. We have had similar success with our efforts on ensuring a high quality intellectual property provision in TPP with op-eds authored by several of our members across the nation.
ALEC luvs the TPP
But ALEC corps do have TPP deal breakers – as noted by ALECer Bramble.
ALEC corps want exactly what they paid to get.
Justice Performance Project is currently submitting grant proposals and working to bring on new private sector members, specifically in the corrections and reentry area, specifically crime lab and GPS tracking areas.
ALEC legislation - again manipulating the free market to create new profit centers for ALEC corporations.
And I can't leave this one out!
ALEC said it - ALEC owns it.
Private sector prospects and members have begun to understand the tremendous influence that our legislator members have on national and international policy in spite of having no official jurisdiction on this policy
You could read that two ways
“on this policy” could mean TPP
“on this policy” could mean
the legislators aren't in control - ALEC is.
The extremist, ultraconservative, pro-corporate American Legislative Exchange Council spreading their nastiness across the US and the world.
Think about it
the tremendous influence that our legislator members have
