Shining a Spotlight on Corporate Legislation

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.
