    For those of you wanting more of information about Arizona’s plight, read the article appearing in Truthout.com entitled ALEC in Arizona, Democracy in Peril This article refers to a “new report by Common Cause and the People for the American Way Foundation: “ALEC in Arizona: the Voice of Corporate Special Interests in the Halls of Arizona’s Legislature,” which exposes ALEC’s influence and impact on Arizona public policy. Close analysis of Arizona legislation on a range of subjects shows remarkably similar – if not identical – provisions to ALEC “model” bills, including:
    • Draconian anti-immigrant measures that criminalize undocumented workers and penalize their employers, strip native-born Americans of their citizenship rights and require that all publications and materials disseminated by state agencies be written in English only
    • Measures encouraging the privatization of state prisons to the benefit of the private prison industry
    • Voter suppression bills that potentially disenfranchise tens of thousands of Arizonans
    • Attacks on workers, their unions, and collective bargaining and the elimination of public employment through outsourcing and privatizing of government functions
    • Attacks on public education through private school voucher programs
    • Measures to prevent implementation of healthcare reform, and
    • Attacks on federal environmental regulation by attempting to deny the federal government the ability to supersede weak state environmental legislation.”
