Task Force policy discussions will include: Calling on the Federal Government to Allow Banking for Cannabis Companies. Authorizing the Production and Sale of Hemp and CBD. “Now more than ever, the work of ALEC is sorely needed,” said ALEC Chairman and South Carolina Representative Alan Clemmons. “Decisionmakers come together at forums like ALEC to exchange ideas and create solutions. It’s been ALEC’s hallmark for almost 50 years. We are problem solvers helping create the opportunity for a better life for all.”. The American Legislative Exchange Council is a 501(c)(3) educational organization that provides nonpartisan research, study and analysis.
