ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council, is a group that drafts and pushes legislation on the state level that champions and preserves corporate and conservative interests.  In recent years, the group has been instrumental in introducing over 200 pieces into law from Stand Your Ground laws to voter ID laws, to anti-immigration laws. ALEC does not identify as a lobby interest group meaning that the rules of lobbying do not apply to them because under the law they are not “a lobby group” despite promoting and drafting thousands of model bills every year. ALEC has been a key player in the national push for banning gender affirming healthcare and transgender particiaption in sports.
