Read this info from Wikipedia:
The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is a politically conservative 501(c)(3) nonprofit policy organization, consisting of both state legislators and members of the private sector, mostly representing corporations. ALEC’s mission statement describes the organization’s purpose as the advancement of free-market principles, limited government, federalism, and individual liberty.
Among other activities, the group provides a venue for private individuals and corporations to assist politicians in developing what it considers model laws serving the economic and political aims of its members. ALEC also serves as a networking tool among state legislators, allowing them to research the handling and “best practices” of policy in other states.
ALEC currently has more than 2,000 legislative members representing all 50 states, as well as more than 85 members of congress and 14 sitting or former governors who are considered “alumni”. ALEC also claims approximately 300 corporate, foundation, and other private-sector members. A list of ALEC leaders in the states includes 73 Republican lawmakers and 7 Democrats.
ALEC has more than 2,000 legislative members in the 50 states – ready and willing to follow conservative orders – and boast “alumni” of more than 85 members of congress and 14 sitting or former governors.
ALEC was founded in September 1973, when a small group of conservative state legislators and policy advocates met in Chicago with the stated purpose of founding “A nonpartisan membership association for conservative state lawmakers who shared a common belief in limited government, free markets, federalism, and individual liberty.” – Wikipedia
ALEC Founders and those with original ALEC fingerprints include:
1973 ALEC Co-founder: Paul M. Weyrich (October 7, 1942 – December 18, 2008) was an American conservative political activist and commentator, notable figurehead of the New Right and co-founder of the Heritage Foundation, states Wikipedia:

SourceWatch website with info about ERIC Laws and the conspiracy involving the the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) that gets it sacks of cash (funding) from Koch Industries, Big Oil, Big Pharma, the Scaife family Allegheny Foundation, the Coors family Castle Rock Foundation, and more:
The American Legislative Exchange Council, ALEC, brings together corporations and legislators to write legislation prior to submitting it to local legislative bodies across the United States. This technique is being used to produce legislation that benefits corporate interests over the interests of local residents.
You see these laws causing political chaos in Wisconsin, Ohio, Florida and many other states. One of the ALEX projects includes efforts to limit voter participation by various means and thus drive down Democratic votes.
These activities disenfranchise voters through Voter ID requirements, restricting college student voting, disenfranchising persons with prison records, manipulating the voting process and more.
These laws have a greater impact on minorities, women, the elderly and the poor.

John Nichols tells VideoNation the story of the Wisconsin uprising – And how it transformed and democratized American politics, why it revived an “immense amount of hope,” even in an era in which money and corporations disproportionately influence politics, and how it proved that exercising one’s fundamental rights can effect major change.

The U.S. House of Representatives voted 388-to-3 in favor of H.R. 347 late Monday, Feb. 27, 2012 – that ostensibly makes trespass illegal on the White House Grounds – but also allows the government to arrest Americans engaged in political protest anyplace/anywhere/anytime.
Georgia Senators crafted their own similar anti-union legislation – House Bill 469 – making protesting by workers illegal.
