Ties to American Legislative Exchange Council
Spence is a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). She has served as Chair of the ALEC's Education Task Force Chair since 2007. She was awarded the ALEC Legislative Education Award in 2007.  Spence has received a total of $8,218.79 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.
