ALEC Breakdown: 2024 Essential Policy Solutions with Jonathan Williams and Lee Schalk

ALEC has put together some of the best and brightest ideas for free market reforms in 2024.

Jonathan Williams, ALEC Executive Vice President of Policy and Chief Economist, and Lee Schalk, ALEC Vice President of Policy, talk on ALEC’s upcoming policy priorities in 2024 based on the latest Essential Policy Solutions report on this ALEC Breakdown.

Schalk in his remarks introduced the report and its uses for legislators and the general public who want to learn more on the upcoming policy discussions taking place across the states in 2024.

We’re excited to talk a little bit about our latest publication from the ALEC policy team, which is our 2024 Essential Policy Solutions report. If you were with us in Scottsdale, Arizona, for our State’s & Nation Policy Summit, you may have heard a little bit about this new publication. You may have even grabbed a couple of hard copies to take that home with you. For those of you who weren’t able to join us, we wanted to give an overview today about what this is all about, why we publish this report and how you might be able to use it back home in your state.

Williams relayed the same in his remarks with the policy ideas being presented in this publication.

We talked to many state legislators just recently in Scottsdale, Arizona, as they were sending it back to you and colleagues back home.  It’s a resource for some great best practices and dozens of ideas across all of our 10 policy task forces. ALEC has put together some of the best and brightest ideas for free market reforms, and so many good things to unpack here from an ALEC-wide perspective. The three E’s have been a key of the ALEC policy priorities: economic opportunity, education freedom, and energy independence. Those you’ll see highlighted in detail with dozens of ideas across the policy space here for every state legislator, red state or blue state alike.
