ALEC Legislation

Martin cosponsored SB 6011, which would create a separate fund for any revenues derived from offshore energy development.

Martin was the Senate patron of SJR 17, a resolution reaffirming the 10th Amendment and chastising federal mandates.

Martin cosponsored SB 585, a bill to create a searchable budget database website. This bill only calls for disclosure of expenditures and excludes costly tax credits and loopholes.

Martin was the lead patron of SB 311 and cosponsored SB 417 and SB 283, bills prohibiting the penalization of residents for failing to obtain health insurance coverage. ALEC touts on its website that this legislation has been introduced in at least 38 states. This legislation has served as the basis for standing in Attorney General Cuccinelli's lawsuit against the federal government over the Affordable Care Act. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit threw out Cuccinelli's suit, ruling that the Virginia Health Care Freedom Act did not provide him standing to sue. (Sources: ALEC, Washington Post)

Martin was the lead patron of SJ 301, which would enshrine the right to a secret ballot in the Virginia Constitution for public elections and for approving workplace collective bargaining.

Martin was the lead patron of SB 301 and SB 864, bills that would disallow the use of a voter registration card as sufficient ID at the polls and require voters without an approved ID to cast a provisional ballot.
