|Iowa Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO|
Last week, we called on legislators to cut ties with the extreme conservative front group, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). This week, we received a response. From the floor of the House, Rep. Ralph Watts declared "How should we respond to Progress Iowa? I say, nuts to you!"
The response from Rep. Watts made one thing clear: he and his fellow ALEC members need to hear directly from their constituents. Today we are asking all Iowans to contact their Governor and legislators to call on them to cut ties with ALEC. Will you join us?
Unless legislators hear from their constituents, ALEC's tentacles will continue to reach into Iowa publicy policy: promoting voter suppression, privatizing public services, and creating anti-environment legislation.
Join us today, call on your legislators to cut ties with ALEC, and forward this message to your friends!
Thanks for all you do,
