Recently, State Representative Jarrod B. Martin (R-Beavercreek) participated in the American Legislative Exchange Council’s (ALEC) annual Spring Task Force Summit in Cincinnati, Ohio, where hundreds of legislators and policy leaders from across the country gathered to discuss policy issues ranging from education to health care to fiscal responsibility.

Representative Martin offered suggestions to help colleagues in other states and also brought back a great deal of information to help Ohio become an economically stable and successful state.

“Ohio faces similar economic issues as other states in terms of commerce, health care, business growth and crippled state budgets. It’s our responsibility as elected officials to have the most current information and best choices possible when making policy decisions to help Ohio succeed out of this recession,” said Representative Martin.

ALEC meetings are designed to help legislators share suggestions and solutions with each other. In addition, legislative leaders from the states can propose policies for ALEC to adopt as a national organization.

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is the nation’s largest nonpartisan individual membership association of state legislators, with nearly 2,000 state legislators across the nation and more than 100 alumni members in Congress. ALEC’s mission is to promote free markets, individual liberty, and federalism through its model legislation in the states.
