The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is an organization comprised of public and private sector members (largely made up of state legislators and corporate/association government affairs representatives) from all 50 states that share common support for free market principles and individual liberties. 

At ALEC's recent Spring Task Force Summit in Hot Springs, Arkansas, the Criminal Justice Task Force unanimously adopted a model "Campus Personal Protection Act."  Brought forth by NRA-ILA, the act calls for the repeal of state restrictions on the possession of firearms by valid concealed handgun licensees on college and university campuses and preempts governing bodies of postsecondary educational institutions from imposing such restrictions on permit holders.  This Act will officially become ALEC "Model Legislation" in 30 days if there is no objection from ALEC's Board of Directors.
