Protests planned against conservative lawmakers

Community members and organizations are planning protests Wednesday against groups of conservative lawmakers meeting in Scottsdale. Various organizations ranging from labor to civil rights groups plan to protest against the American Legislative Exchange Council‘s States and Nation Summit.

The protesters accuse ALEC of being a massive nonprofit body that brings corporations and legislators together to draft “model” legislation like Arizona’s SB 1070.

The ALEC Website says legislators from all 50 states are meeting over three days to discuss free-market solutions to creating jobs, improving education and jumpstarting the American economy.
