ALEC National Task Forces
ALEC’s eight National Task Forces serve as public policy laboratories where legislators develop model policies to use across the country. Task Forces also commission research, publish issue papers, convene workshops and issue briefings, and serve as clearinghouses of information on free-market policies in the states. Unique to ALEC Task Forces is their public-private partnership, a synergistic alliance that identifies issues and then responds with common sense, results-oriented policies.
Legislators welcome their private sector counterparts to the table as equals, working in unison to solve the challenges facing the nation.
