Progressive Wyoming lawmakers can now look to ALICE for model legislation

ShockandAwed reports on Daily Kos that there's a new group working to provide a progressive counterweight to the ultra-conservative American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC. The American Legislative and Issue Campaign Exchange, or ALICE, has a web site that provides model laws that move us FORWARD instead of backward. The recent election showed that most Americans are much more interested in moving ahead than moving back into a  past where women were in the kitchen, people of color were out in the fields, working people were forced to shop at the company store and children were yoked to the assembly line (or hauling coal out of underground mines). Read the rest of ShockandAwed's article here. Meanwhile, keep on eye out for ALEC-sponsored legislation in our upcoming Wyoming Legislature. You will know it by its retro conservative POV. For some of my previous posts on ALEC in Wyoming, go here and here. Read the DKos article here.
