Ties to the American Legislative Exchange Council
Brooks spoke at a "Leadership Dinner" at ALEC's 2011 Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA, on August 2, 2011
ALEC is a corporate bill mill. It is not just a lobby or a front group; it is much more powerful than that. Through ALEC, corporations hand state legislators their wishlists to benefit their bottom line. Corporations fund almost all of ALEC's operations. They pay for a seat on ALEC task forces where corporate lobbyists and special interest reps vote with elected officials to approve “model” bills.
