A Progressive Counterweight to the Conservative ALEC Agenda

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is a powerful group of conservative U.S. state legislators and private sector representatives that drafts state-level legislation. Then it shares these model drafts among state governments so they may be easily replicated. ALEC prides itself on advancing free-market enterprise, limited government, and federalism at the state level. ALEC is largely funded by special interests groups.

State Innovation Exchange (SiX)

Nick Rathod, Executive Director of State Innovation Exchange (SiX), aims to provide a counterweight to ALEC by ‘building the legislative wing of the Progressive Movement.’ Hear more about Rathod in this podcast interview with host Ben Wikler of The Good Fight. For decades, corporations have found Republicans ready to do their bidding thanks to a shadowy outfit known as ALEC. But Nick Rathod, a preacher’s son, has a plan to fight back.” ~ Ben Wikler
