Reverse AT&T-ALEC Resources

AT&T, Verizon, Centurylink & ALEC



About ALEC:

The American Legislative Exchange Council, ALEC, is a skunkworks organization who puts together member corporations in many industries — including the phone and cable companies — with state and federal politicians — who are also members. Together they write ‘model legislation’ to make sure that the communications companies win — and you lose.

Reverse ALEC: The Threat:

Currently, the phone companies, working with ALEC have been able to create state legislation to close down all regulations and obligations. On the Federal level AT&T has filed the ALEC principles as a Petition, and even got the FCC to create a working group and task force to help close down your rights.
