Steve Seale, former Mississippi State Senator and former Chief Counsel to US Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, has been named 2013-2014 National Chairman of the Private Enterprise Advisory Council of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). In his role as Private Enterprise Advisory Council Chairman, Seale will coordinate interaction between ALEC private sector member companies and their representatives with the more than 2000 ALEC state legislative members from around the country.
ALEC is a nonpartisan membership association for conservative state lawmakers who share a common belief in limited government, free markets, federalism, and individual liberty. ALEC’s Task Forces have considered, written and approved hundreds of model bills on a wide range of issues, model legislation that will frame the debate today and far into the future. Each year, close to 1,000 bills, based at least in part on ALEC Model Legislation, are introduced in the states. Of these, an average of 20 percent become law.
