    The bill passed Tuesday in Michigan takes language verbatim from ALEC's model legislation

    The Republican-backed right-to-work bill given final approval Tuesday in Michigan contains language cribbed verbatim from a model anti-union bill created by ALEC, according to a watchdog group.

    The American Legislative Exchange Council, of course, is the corporate-backed, conservative-leaning organization that has become a bugaboo for liberals by pushing legislation to do everything from roll back environmental regulation to weaken gun control laws, as brought to the fore this year by the murder of Trayvon Martin. ALEC, like lots of groups that work in state capitols, creates “model legislation” that friendly lawmakers can introduce in whole or as a basis for their own bills.

    Both Michigan’s HB 4003, which affects public sector unions, and HB 4054, which affects private sector unions, appears to pull language directly from ALEC’s model right-to-work bill. The Center for Media and Democracy, a liberal watchdog group which has been working for years to expose ALEC’s activities, created these chart comparing the language:

    Michigan's Governor and Legislature bought lock, stock and barrel by corporations. You can't get the people's votes....so you buy their representation.

    Same as Wisconsin. Same as Florida.

    We must stop private campaign funding. We are getting as corrupt as any Third World backwater.

    Campaiign finance reform NOW.
