Regarding "More lawmakers pushing identical bills written by national groups" (Republic, April 5):
The expanding influence of the American Legislative Exchange Council and model-bill drafting concerns me as an issue that imposes national agendas upon regional politics. This, in combination with the recent Supreme Court ruling on the McCutcheon case, only further increases national and outside pressures to peddle mandated agendas, making our state a battleground for issues that are not brought up by Arizona voters. Keep Arizona politics about Arizona.
