Shining a Spotlight on Corporate Legislation

| August 13, 2003

A new coalition of progressive groups representing some 18 million Americans has come together to fight the corrosive effects of corporate-backed legislation. The Washington-based Public Trust Partnership, launched July 29, hopes to expose the work of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a 30-year-old collaboration between state legislators and right-wing business leaders that has pushed through some of the nation's most radical anti-government legislation. 'The Public Trust Partnership is going to make sure that our members and the larger public know about these dangerous proposals and the corporate-funded ALEC effort to influence legislators,' said Ralph G. Neas. President of the People For the American Way Foundation, one of the new organization's founding members.
