Even after the American Legislative Exchange Council agreed to dismantle its non-economic taskforces responsible for writing legislation like Voter ID laws and Shoot First laws – the exodus of corporate members continues.  Today – Yum! Brands, which owns Pizza hut, KFC, and Taco Bell became the twelfth company or organization to drop its membership with ALEC. 

This particular withdrawal is significant since Yum! Brands co-chaired ALEC’s Labor and Business Regulation Subcommittee, which has pushed legislation to repeal labor protections for workers.  That’s twelve members of ALEC down – let’s hope more decide to drop out soon.
