A Few Questions About ALEC
I was reading Phil Marcelo’s story in the Providence Journal today about the state legislators who had joined ALEC but weren’t too familiar with the organization. One thing near the end that stuck out was Sen. Walter Felag looking into canceling his membership. I decided to steal a page from Andrew’s book and send Senator Felag some questions about this. I know state legislators don’t like to answer questions from non-direct constituents, but hopefully we’ll get a response.
In the meantime, here were the very simple questions:
1. Why did you become a member of ALEC?
2. Why are you looking to terminate your membership?
3. Are you a member of any other organizations and are you keeping your membership with those?
4. Because you are looking to terminate your membership, are you willing to reimburse the state for your membership dues?
I just sent these tonight, so with the Assembly back in session for the next few days, I’ll look forward to a response.
