81. Source for ALEC A-Z (American Legislative Exchange Council)
ALEC story is bubbling up.

We have posted as close to a 'one-stop shop' on the American Legislative Exchange Council (The CNP and Heritage Foundation arm that writes corporate monopoly law at the State Level - Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, etc).

Posted on Kos under this "<a href="http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/03/08/953811/-Gov-Ri... ">Gov Rick Snyder Sellout? Prefabricated Corporate Michigan (Government) Courtesy of Koch & ALEC Excl</a>.".

Permission granted by authors to REPOST and use as you see fit. It's a Free Country... sort of.

Haven't been on DU for awhile, but since Kos is now "a bunch of crusty old white guys" maybe I should.
