In North Carolina, ALEC-inspired marching orders can be seen in the dismantling of environmental regs, in the narrowing of ballot access, and in such "tort reform" as the attempt to free pharmaceutical companies of liability if they should happen to kill or maim people.
Among several more Republican lawmakers who attended the ALEC conference this past weekend and haven't yet asked to have their travel expenses picked up by taxpayers, the following have put in requests for reimbursement:
Tim Moore, NC House Speaker
Rep. Hugh Blackwell of Burke County
Rep. John Fraley of Iredell County
Rep. Craig Horn of Union County
Sen. David Curtis of Gaston County
Pay for your own snake oil, gentlemen!
