"The annual Meeting of the American Legislative Exchange Council provides a unique opportunity for legislators from all 50 states to come together to discuss policy solutions collectively along with public-policy experts and the private sector," said Speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates Bill Howell, ALEC's 2009 National Chairman. "ALEC's process of producing principled model legislation is unparalleled among its type," he added.

Other notable speakers will include: Dr. Art Laffer and Stephen Moore, co-authors of ALEC's Rich States, Poor States: ALEC-Laffer State Economic Competitiveness Index; syndicated radio host Herman Cain; and Daniel Hannan (MEP).

Most of the business conducted at ALEC occurs in one of its nine Task Forces which include; Health and Human Services; Natural Resources; Education; Tax and Fiscal Policy; Public Safety and Elections; Civil Justice; Commerce, Insurance, and Economic Development; Telecommunications and Information Technology; and International Relations. These Task Forces have considered, written, and approved hundreds of model bills, offering real policy solutions for states on a wide range of issues. Each year, state legislatures consider close to 1,000 bills that are based, at least in part, on ALEC Model Legislation. Hundreds of these bills are enacted every year.
