Welcome to the new website of SMART ALEC

smart alec logo 1Welcome to the new home of SMART ALEC, a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of progressive public policy in U.S. states and cities by facilitating the distribution and adoption of citizen-friendly model legislation.

Our first model ordinance is Affordable Housing Impact Statements, adopted last year by Atlanta, and currently under consideration in Pittsburgh and New Orleans. We are looking to get AHIS adopted in five more cities over the next two years, while growing a national network to promote cutting edge, progressive local solutions.
