Express-Scripts is Twenty-Sixth Corporation to Dump ALEC

Pharmacy benefits manager Express-Scripts told the Center for Media and Democracy today that it has ended its membership in the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), making it the twenty-sixth business to dump ALEC in recent months.

Express-Scripts’ head of corporate communications David Whitrap confirmed to CMD that the corporation has dropped its ALEC membership but did not provide a reason. The St. Louis, Missouri-based Express-Scripts had been a member of ALEC and its Health and Human Services Task Force since at least 2010. At the 2011 ALEC Annual Meeting, Express-Scripts sponsored the “Missouri Night” party for legislators from the state at Antoine’s Restaurant in New Orleans.
