We are pleased to announce that an additional 12 Texas Legislators – 9 Republicans and 3 Democrats – have left and will no longer be a part of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). These 12 Legislators join 12 others who announced they were leaving in April of 2012, bringing the total number of Texas legislators who have left ALEC to 24 this year alone.
“These legislators have shown the courage of their convictions by standing up to a corporate bill factory and declaring their support for the people of Texas above all else,” said Matt Glazer, Executive Director of Progress Texas.
Nationwide, 70 legislators have left ALEC; the 24 that have left from Texas is the most of any state. Additionally, 32 corporations across the country have cut ties with ALEC. See ALECExposed.org for a complete list by clicking on their logo on our sidebar under Our Favorite Sites.
