Investors, activists press eBay, others to break up with ALEC

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – More than 80 environmental, labor and civic groups on Tuesday urged eBay Inc to end its association with the political group the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), weeks after Google Inc abruptly left ALEC over its views on climate change.

Civic groups such as Common Cause and the Environmental Defense Fund and unions including the International Brotherhood of Teamsters wrote to the e-commerce company’s management asking it to reconsider involvement in ALEC because of what they called its “extreme agenda.”
