Whose side is your legislator on?

A secretive corporate front group called the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) has been ghostwriting legislation which VA legislators have been passing off as their own work. The bills written by ALEC cover virtually every area of public policy, including healthcare, education, voting restrictions, tax policy and prioritizing corporate bottom lines over constituents.

Over the past weeks, 16 corporations (including household names like Coca Cola, Procter & Gamble, and McDonalds) and over 50 state legislators across the country have abruptly severed ties with the group, as well as their financial support.

Where do your legislators stand? Find out below and then take action!

If they are not a member of ALEC, please thank them for standing with Virginia families.

If they ARE a member or refuse to comment on their affiliation, click here to tell them “It’s time to quit!”

List based on statements provided to ProgressVA by legislators and their staff. If you have any questions or would like to update your status, please contact ProgressVA at info@progressva.org.
