Via Kevin Drum, progressives now have a new resource for helping good bills get through state legislatures. It's called the Progressive Legislative Action Network, and it was inspired by a conservative outfit called the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). You can read the story of its genesis here, or just go check out the site and its blog and see how you can get involved. I like the look of it and hope it gets some traction.
On a related note, Kos recently wrote about focusing more on local races, a thought that was expanded on here and here. Gotta win those legislative races before you can get anything done there, after all.Posted by Charles Kuffner on February 22, 2006 to Show Business for Ugly People | TrackBack
