ALEC Backs Extreme Climate Denial, Constitutional Rewrite and Corporate Lobbyists

ALEC state politicians, Koch machine groups, and corporate captains will once again huddle together to produce right-wing cookie cutter “model bills” to take back to their respective state houses when the corporate pay-to-play group holds its States & Nation Policy Summit this week in Nashville, Tennessee. The meeting begins today and runs through Friday at the 4-star Omni Nashville hotel, located next door to the Country Music Hall of Fame.

ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) claims that it will have a record 1,000 people at the summit, which will feature keynote speeches from Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN), and former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, as well as a host of supply-side economists and economic analysts.
