A public records request published in March 2018 exposed 15 Colorado state legislators who are current members of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). This report can be viewed here.
The Colorado state legislators on this list are as follows:
ALEC brings together corporate lobbyists and state legislators to create business-friendly model bills—behind closed doors and without public input. These bills are then introduced into state legislatures across the country. ALEC has helped pass state laws that loosen environmental regulations, enforce stricter voter identification rules, weaken labor unions and the rights of workers, and more. ALEC likes to operate in secrecy, and has done an excellent job keeping out of the public eye. The organization does not release names of their members, and all ALEC meetings are closed off from the public and media.Our elected leaders should serve their constituents—not corporate interests. If your Colorado state legislator is a member of ALEC, contact them RIGHT NOW and demand that they cut ties with this organization.
