ALEC Encourages Responsible Resource Production

“Texas became the first state to enact the bill in 2011. In December of 2011, it was approved as an ALEC model bill by the Legislative Board of Directors soon thereafter. States across the nation are assessing their own regulatory needs and this has led many to take up ALEC’s model bill.”
WOW:
This is the same TX disclosure legislation that Scott Anderson of EDF, who had worked enthusiastically with industry to develop the TX legislation, later entirely disavowed that law as being not good for other states:
“Unfortunately, however, Environmental Defense Fund must oppose adoption of the Texas legislation by other states or by the federal government because the measure has serious limitations.”

As far as I know, EDF and Mr. Anderson has been silent on the whooping discrepancy between what EDF asserts as a position and the subsequent enthusiastic adoption and promulgation by ALEC of this “bad” legislation.
