WASHINGTON, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Steve McDaniel, Tennessee State Representative and board member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), issued the following statement today:
"I can say with confidence that there are few organizations that have done more to impact free market policies and strengthen individual liberties than ALEC. I am proud to be a partner with such a successful organization and to work in partnership with other legislators from around the country to promote legislation that creates a more transparent, accountable government and put us on a path toward economic prosperity.
"ALEC has come under attack by people who continually advocate for big-government economic policies that will keep us mired in slow growth. These attacks merely cloud the real solutions; solutions to which ALEC has been committed since day one.
"I am glad to see the organization taking the necessary steps to refocus its efforts on the issues that are top of mind for all Americans – job growth and economic recovery. I look forward to being a part of ALEC's every future success."
The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is the nation's largest nonpartisan individual membership association of state legislators, with over 2,000 state legislators across the nation and more than 100 alumni members in Congress. ALEC's mission is to promote free markets, limited government, and federalism throughout the states.
