Does the American Legislative Exchange Council promote new bills yearly?

The American Legislative Exchange Council is an organization that creates "model bills" that reflect the interest of big business and encourages state legislators to adopt those bills as legislation to introduce to their legislatures. ALEC promotes these model bills to legislators who attend one or all of three annual meetings each year.

I have information provided by ALEC, and I have information provided by watchdog websites like those supported by the Center for Media and Democracy (PR Watch, ALEC Exposed, etc.). And I've listened to interviews by Mr. Nichols and Mr. Pilkington regarding their investigative work on ALEC. My question is does ALEC continue to promote bills from past years or does it focus mostly on pushing new legislation for current years? Or might ALEC propose a bill in some year and if, in some subsequent year, a legislator sees an opportunity to revive it, that can be their focus, not the focus of ALEC?
