TPPF responds to U.S. Senator Dick Durbin’s (D-IL) Inquiries on ALEC

Foundation: "We will not be intimidated."

AUSTIN – The Texas Public Policy Foundation responded today to U.S. Senator Dick Durbin's (D-IL) letter of August 6, 2013 requesting information on the Foundation's relationship with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and its internal decision making. The response letter was drafted and signed by the Foundation's Board Chairman Dr. Wendy Gramm, and its President and CEO Brooke Rollins.

"Public policy organizations such as TPPF and ALEC deserve to be respectfully engaged even by those opposed to limited government and individual liberty," they write, "We are disappointed that, instead, it appears you are attempting to intimidate ALEC and like-minded groups whose policy views you disagree with … We will not be intimidated."

Dr. Wendy Lee Gramm is chairman of the board of the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

Brooke L. Rollins is president and CEO of the Texas Public Policy Foundation.


The Texas Public Policy Foundation is a non-profit, free-market research institute based in Austin.
