ALEC’s national Task Forces serve as public-policy laboratories where legislators develop model policies to use across the country. The nine Task Forces commission research, publish issue papers, convene workshops and issue alerts, and serve as clearinghouses of information on free market policies in the states.
Unique to ALEC Task Forces is the 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 our nation.
The centerpiece to the Task Forces is ALEC’s model policy. To date, ALEC has considered, written, and approved hundreds of model policies, resolutions, and policy statements. To learn more about one of our nine Task Forces, contact any of our Task Force Directors.
