Noted. Thanks, J.L. Great report. It should doom ALEC to being non-existent....but I'm a bit of a dreamer. If only!

You are welcome Lois. It should provide ammunition for those who want positive economic results for their states to prevent policies being adopted and lead those who truly want to serve their states and act in the interests of their state and people to resign...will that doom them? Possibly not...or if sufficiently, the corporate puppet masters will start a new group to replace it under a different name sort of like what we here of financial scam artists...greed always seems to find followers. You cannot currently send a star to Lois because you have done so within the last week.

I see nothing wrong with taking the top and bottom 6 and comparing the results, those in the middle probably use some combination of the policies addressed. I wonder how many people will actually look at the report?

A lot of professional researchers agree with you John. Hopefully enough read the report--concerned citizens can even send it to their legislators if they so choose. You cannot currently send a star to John because you have done so within the last week.

ALEC is bad news for America. Their work benefits only the wealthy.
