Ties to the American Legislative Exchange Council
Merrick is a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). He is both the Kansas State Chairman for ALEC, as well as a member of its Board of Directors.
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.
