The American Legislative Exchange Council is a nonprofit organization of conservative state legislators and private sector representatives who draft and share model state-level legislation for distribution among state governments in the United States.

In August 2019, ALEC members met in Austin, Texas to discuss the “Green Real Deal,” a centrist resolution proposed by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) that aims to garner bipartisan support. The proposal is a more moderate response to the far-left’s Green New Deal, proposed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). It is represented by House Resolution 288 and was filed in May 2019. The plan is a “love letter to the American innovator” according to Gaetz and aims to be the free-enterprise alternative to Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal. [1][2] ALEC members rejected the resolution for further consideration after individuals on ALEC’s Energy, Environment and Agriculture Task Force decided it was against the organization’s principles.
