Center for Media and Democracy ALEC Exposed Project Convention Video

"The Center for Media and Democracy hosted a panel at the first Democracy Convention, held in Madison, WI, in August 2011, on it's recently launched ALEC Exposed project. The project made available more than 800 "model" bills and resolutions secretly voted on by corporate and legislative members of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). ALEC has become the premier institution for crafting and promoting model legislation and resolutions that largely benefit its corporate members. Graves was joined by a panel of experts who discussed the ways in which ALEC has crafted legislation that undermines our democracy, and has had devastating effects on immigrant and worker's rights."
