    appear to be resolutions, which do not have any legal effect.

    I'm fairly up on trends in state taxation, and I don't see that ALEC has had much effect--whether directly or indirectly--on state tax legislation.

    I think ALEC is a scam, which isn't surprising, given that Weyrich founded it.  Not that that minimizes the pernicious effect it has on democracy, but I suspect that some people are raking in major $$$ running ALEC.
