The news was first reported by PR Watch.

Ford follows a slew of major corporations that have decided to cut ties with ALEC over the past few years. The conservative organization drafts model legislation, and the group's model bills were taken up by many state legislatures following the 2010 elections.

In recent years companies linked to the group taken issue with ALEC's climate change denial and opposition to renewable energy projects. By the end of 2014, companies like Microsoft, Google, Visa and General Motors had cut ties with the group. In a statement, Google said that ALEC was "literally lying about climate change."
