‘Dark Cloud’ of ALEC Converges at Annual Corporate-Political Lovefest | Common Dreams

‘Dark Cloud’ of ALEC Converges at Annual Corporate-Political Lovefest (Link)

“Miles Rapoport, president of the grassroots advocacy organization Common Cause, described the meeting as ‘a festival of closed-door deal-making by politicians, corporate executives and lobbyists,’ at which ‘they gather to do the public’s business in private, fashioning legislation that undercuts the public interest in things like clean air and water, quality public schools, economic fairness and participatory democracy.”

It was with these charges in mind that more than 1,000 labor, social justice, and environmental advocates rolled out the unwelcome mat for the ALEC legislators and lobbyists on Wednesday, saying they didn’t want the corporate-backed group in their city.”
