He sits on the following committees: Appropriations (Senior Chairman), Banking (Vice-Chairman), Commerce and Job Development, Commerce and Job Development Subcommittee on Business and Labor, Health and Human Services, House Select Committee on University Board of Governors Nominations, Insurance, Public Utilities (Vice-Chairman).
Brubaker is on the Board of Directors, as well as the International Relations Task Force of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), as of July 2011. He has been involved with ALEC for decades-- in 1986, he was the ALEC State Chairman of North Carolina.
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.
