ALEC member corporations don’t just lobby legislators at fancy resorts or expensive legislative dinners.  They employ armies of lobbyists in state legislatures to ensure that the legislators they support move the model bills they want. In some cases, lobbyists have no idea the bill they push came from ALEC.

We reviewed 2013 Secretary of State lobbyist filings and ALEC member corporations identified by the ALEC watchdog group ALEC Exposed (a project of the Center for Media and Democracy).   The resulting report identified these New Mexico lobbyists employed by ALEC-member corporations.

Both sources were obtained in November 2013.
