Ties to the American Legislative Exchange Council
Cadman is the Colorado State Chairman of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), as of 2011. He also serves on ALEC’s Board of Directors. He received a total of $9,122.51 in ALEC “scholarships” according to data from 2006 to 2008.
ALEC is a corporate bill mill. It is not just a lobby or a front group; it is much more powerful than that. Through ALEC, corporations hand state legislators their wishlists to benefit their bottom line. Corporations fund almost all of ALEC's operations. They pay for a seat on ALEC task forces where corporate lobbyists and special interest reps vote with elected officials to approve “model” bills.
