About ALEC
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. Learn more at the Center for Media and Democracy's, and check out breaking news on our site.

A 2006 graduate of Middle Tennessee State University, Shrum formerly interned with the Republican National Committee in the spring semester of 2006. He then spent two years working at Advantage, Inc., "a grassroots and voter contact firms used by Republican candidates and public affairs organizations."[2] Upon leaving that position, he commenced a year and a half stint at the Tax Foundation. In July 2010, he began his current role with ALEC.[3]
