A.L.E.C: America Legislative Exchange Council

The American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, is a non-profit organization that some call a front operation for corporations who use loop holes to turn state legislators into corporate lobbyists.

Currently fourteen oregon state legislators are members of ALEC.

Gene Whisnant represents the bend area from district fiftythree and was named the 2010 national associate of the year by ALEC. 

K-B-O-O reporter Noah Fehlberg spoke with Richard Reid, a concerned Oregon citizen and activist, about what direct effect this organization has on politics.
