ALEC, The American Legislative Exchange Council (originally the "Conservative Caucus of State Legislators") was created in 1973. Its goals were to counter the Environmental Protection Agency, Unions, and government price controls. ALEC members include conservative corporations, and conservative state and federal legislators.

According to its website, ALEC "works to advance the fundamental principles of free-market enterprise, limited government, and federalism at the state level through a nonpartisan public-private partnership of America's state legislators, members of the private sector and the general public"

ALEC members include over 300 corporations, about of state legislators, and many members of congress, as well as a few Republican presidential candidates.

ALEC meets in secret, no cameras or recordings allowed, twice a year to discuss and draft legislation that would increase corporate profits, and advance the conservative agenda. Even though millions of dollars a year are funneled from ALEC member corporations to ALEC member politicians, it is listed as a non-profit organization.

Over the years ALEC has expanded its goals. It now also drafts legislation that reduces taxes on corporations and the rich, and advances pro-corporate legislation. Beyond legislation it rates ALEC friendly Judges, and is now working to influence America’s young people with a high school graduation requirement that promotes its views (Founding Philosophy and Principles Act)Free Reprint Articles,
