Thanks for the information. I checked out the senators and representatives that are associated with ALEC, and I was shocked! Everyone should look up their state and learn just who their elected officials are that are paid by the Koch brothers to 'stick it to the middle class and the poor'.
Thanks again.

A quick check of the Dump ALEC petition page on the PCCC web site showed that 23 corporations or foundations had dumped ALEC, and that 45 Democratic office holders had.
