Sprint Joins GE in Leaving Policy Group Backing Voter-ID Laws

General Electric Co. and Sprint Nextel Corp. joined the exodus of companies from the American Legislative Exchange Council following the group’s support of voter-identification and self-defense laws.

Spokesmen for both companies said yesterday they are ending their membership with the Washington-based public policy organization, which charged corporations as much as $25,000 and allowed them to help write bills that some lawmakers then tried to enact in their home states.
