Protect Public Services from the ALEC Attack

Conservatives control an overwhelming 68 of the 98 state legislative chambers in the US. In 23 states, conservative governors lead the executive branch and conservatives have the majority in both chambers of the legislature. We also know that the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is pushing bills to expand school privatization while cities across the country are worried about failing infrastructure, how to afford overdue repairs, and wondering if a public-private partnership is the answer to strapped budgets and deteriorating public assets.

We need to be vigilant about the threat of privatization in our community. The group In The Public Interest has developed resources and tools that can help strengthen our campaigns to keep public services and assets under public control. We can use them to bolster community support and to educate elected officials.
