Ties to the American Legislative Exchange Council
Buck is also a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). He is the ALEC Indiana State Chair, ALEC Co-Chair for Tax and Fiscal Policy Task Force, as well as a member of the ALEC Board of Directors, all as of July 2011.
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.
