The Free Enterprise Alliance, ABC’s issue advocacy arm, has already spent upward of a million dollars in 12 states to educate elected officials and the public about the importance of fair and open competition, with plans to more than double that amount ahead of November midterm elections. The advocacy campaigns, which include digital ads on multiple platforms, mailers and text messages, focus on key legislative issues: the ABC-opposed Inflation Reduction Act and the Protecting the Right to Organize Act.
The 12 states include Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, where FEA has launched videos and websites to educate the public on priority issues affecting the merit shop construction industry and the communities in which they work.
FEA encourages constituents to tell members of Congress to oppose Washington’s reckless tax and spending politics and the PRO Act. Simultaneously, FEA will deploy digital and mail ads to encourage Americans across the country to get out and vote for free enterprise on Nov. 8.
