Four Nebraska Lawmakers Leave ALEC

As of last week, 28 lawmakers decided to end their membership in the corporate front group the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Today, four Nebraska lawmakers — state senators Heath Mello (D), Jeremy Nordquist (D), Danielle Conrad (D), and Ken Haar (D) — announced that they are leaving ALEC or recently decided not to renew their membership.

“They’ve become very extreme on a lot of issues,” said Mello. “I don’t want to be used as a political pawn.” We applaud these senators for departing from ALEC and we hope that many more of every political persuasion will soon make the same decision.

    What were these “Democrats” doing belonging to ALEC in the first place?

      LOL! As if they were any different than the Republicans.

    They must have got a better offer from the competition.

    Why the devil would any elected official think a membership in any organisation such as this is what they should be doing? These people should be representing us, the very people these proposed laws harm, rather than advocating for the blood sucking lobbyists.
