Dr. Ben Carson to Speak on Friday, Dec. 4

Scottsdale, Arizona (November 9, 2015)—Hundreds of state legislators and stakeholders will come together in Scottsdale December 2-4 for the States and Nation Policy Summit of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Attendees will share experiences and ideas and develop research-based model policies focused on limited government, free markets and federalism.

During the three-day conference, members will participate in training sessions, policy workshops and task force meetings. Attendees will also hear from keynote speakers, including presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, Maine Governor Paul LePage, Senator Tom Coburn, American Enterprise Institute (AEI) President Arthur Brooks, Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) President Grover Norquist and National Review Columnist John Fund.

In July, three presidential candidates—Governor Walker, Governor Huckabee and Senator Cruz—spoke at the 42nd ALEC Annual Meeting (click here to see a video recap of the summer conference). ALEC will also welcome Wisconsin State Senator Leah Vukmir as the 2016 ALEC National Chairman. The 2015 National Chairman was Texas State Representative Phil King.

“It’s a great time to be at ALEC,” said ALEC CEO Lisa B. Nelson. “The 2016 state legislative sessions will balance budgets, eliminate oppressive taxes, tackle regulatory reform and protect hardworking taxpayers, and ALEC members are leading the way.”
