ALEC is involved in this and that’s bad news. Through the corporate funded ALEC, global corporations and state politicians vote behind closed doors to try and rewrite state laws that govern our rights.

98% of ALEC’s funding comes from corporations, corporate trade groups and corporate foundations.
