ALEC - Corporate Funding/Membership circa 1998

Gotta love web archives!

This site contained what appeared to be a very extensive list of corporate/organizational funders - information difficult to find today, but assembled in 1999 (? - see note below regarding date conflict). ALEC is secretive about their membership, so I count this as a pretty good score.



Date (per Google):
April 22, 1998 (note that there is a 1999 date in the text below)
