The Arizona Legislature has some of the highest ALEC participation in the nation. The Bill Moyers documentary, “The United States of ALEC,” examines how corporations and state legislators are colluding to write laws and remake America.
The documentary includes a look at what’s happening in the Arizona State legislature. State Representative Steve Farley sheds light on what some ALEC-member legislators are attempting to do in our state.
From bills designed to destroy union strength, to the “Stand Your Ground” laws, ALEC works to make corporations richer while it hurts working families.
Founded almost 40 years ago, American Legislative Exchange Council brings together nearly 2,000 state legislators with hundreds of corporate leaders and lobbyists from many of the world’s most powerful corporations to secretly draft model legislation that is then introduced in our states,
usually without our knowledge.
