About ALEC Action

ALEC Action is the advocacy partner of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), America’s premier nonpartisan, voluntary membership organization of state policymakers.

Recent elections delivered a clear message to Washington: Americans want more individual control and less government intrusion in their personal choices. Similarly, state legislators across the country are committed to reduce the cost of everyday life and expand economic freedom for hardworking taxpayers and their families.

ALEC Action helps lawmakers set policy priorities by connecting people and ideas for a real plan of action that fosters efficient, effective and accountable government. Through state capitol issue briefings, advocacy alerts, public outreach, coalition development and legislative tracking, ALEC Action is one of the most effective state-based advocacy organizations in America that advances real solutions to challenges facing families, businesses and state governments.

ALEC Action provides a powerful, trusted voice for smarter budgets, education choice, innovation, entrepreneurship, economic freedom and other voter priorities in statehouses across the country.
