To: Rep. Jodie Laubenberg, Texas State Chair of ALEC

Take Texas Back From ALEC!

Take Texas Back From ALEC!

You were elected to represent the people of Texas, but instead, you’ve chosen to take orders from the shady, right-wing outfit known as ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council.

You’ve invited ALEC to Dallas at the end of this month, where you’ll meet again behind locked doors, in secret session, to plot your next assault on the democratic process and the people of our State.

We demand that you resign from ALEC and start focusing on the needs of hardworking Texans and their families.

Why is this important?

ALEC skirts the law restricting lobbying activities and gifts to politicians, and pushes its ideologically driven agenda through model bills that put corporate profits and the right-wing agenda before the needs of working people.

What are just some of the laws that ALEC and Laubenberg have promoted, and in many cases, already imposed on Texans?
• Stand your Ground Bill
• Voter ID Bill
• Women’s Sonogram Bill
• Sanctuary Cities Bill
• Anti-ACA Legislation

These actions are hurting millions of Texans, undermining public education, damaging our environment, cutting off access to healthcare, and making our streets, homes and workplaces less safe.

Texas, United States
