Mission Statement

The American Legislative Exchange Council's mission is ... To advance the Jeffersonian Principles of free markets, limited government, federalism, and individual liberty, through a nonpartisan public-private partnership among America's state legislators, concerned members of the private sector, the federal government, and the general public. To promote these principles by developing policies that ensure the powers of government are derived from, and assigned to, first the People, then the States, and finally the Federal Government. To enlist state legislators from all parties and members of the private sector who share ALEC's mission. To conduct a policy making program that unites members of the public and private sector in a dynamic partnership to support research, policy development, and dissemination activities. To prepare the next generation of political leadership through educational programs that promote the principles of Jeffersonian democracy, which are necessary for a free society.
