Free read Ú PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ò Alex Hertel-Fernandez Alex Hertel-Fernandez ò 6 Review Read & download State Capture Most Americans pay little attention to the massive number of elections that occur at the state level every year Yet cumulatively a party's success in state level races across the country can produce major shifts in policymaking and governance That is precisely what has happened in the US since 2010 In a wave election that year the Republican Party began their ascendancy in state level elections and by 2016 had solidified their dominance The party now fully controls 25 state legislatures and governorships one of the largest advantages either party has had sin. An interesting book for its sheer breadth of reporting on the history and facts surrounding semi clandestine organizations like ALEC A flawed book for its distracting conspiratorial tone The reader should consider the possibility that these organizations are acting less as thoroughfares for businesses to write policy which I was not convinced of but rather that the party gently aligns with pro market anti regulatory positions so their cooperation is natural Whether you think that is bad or not feels tangential to the interesting parts of the book Still recommended

This is a tremendous book that thoughtfully and rigorously assesses the structure and impact of conservative policy organizations at the state level It raises interesting uestions about the costs and benefits of federalism today and challenges conventional wisdom about what makes legislatures accountable to ordinary citizensTo briefly summarize conservatives have spent the past half century building a powerful network of public policy organizations that operate largely though not completely below the radar to push right wing legislation in state legislatures The leading organization in this venture is the American Legislative Exchange Council ALEC which provides cookie cutter legislation research support and friendly expert witnesses to help ambitious politicians turn right wing proposals that lack majority popular support into law ALEC s budget is not huge by political spending standards but it effectively takes advantage of the very limited research and legislative resources available to often part time lawmakers to provide one sided presentations and justifications for policies favored by ALEC s dues paying corporate members Through trial and error ALEC has developed a conflicts resolution system that allows the highest bidding member in a given ALEC legislative task force to dictate policy preferences This system assures powerful companies with major legislative interests that they can always drive the policy agenda of ALEC aligned legislators as long as they write a big enough check to the organization as Enron did prior to its collapseALEC in turn works in a mostly synergistic manner with two other conservative organizations Americans for Prosperity and the State Policy Network Americans for Prosperity provides electoral support and astroturf support for rightwing legislators while the State Policy Network provides ostensibly neutral analyses that can then be cited by Americans for Prosperity and ALEC in policy debates The last part of the book looks at the overlap and interactions within this right wing troika and examines the uestion of why liberals have failed to effectively limit the troika s influence on state policyThis is an excellent albeit depressing book The author has invested a significant amount of effort into uantitative research and goes to considerable lengths to show that the successes of ALEC and troika are not simply a function of Republican control of state legislatures He challenges some of the conventional wisdom regarding money in politics presenting evidence that direct corporate contributions to candidates are not correlated with ALEC success and highlights fault lines within the conservative network I highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in state level politics legislative institutions or political advocacy
