ALEC

Special interest groups from Utah and other states gathered Thursday to voice their concerns over the corporate-lobbyist group, ALEC. The American Legislative Exchange Council is currently hosting their 39th annual conference in Salt Lake City through Saturday.

This week the American Legislative Exchange Council or ALEC, will hold its four day conference at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City. But the group isn't without those who oppose their agenda and plan to protest the meeting.

A state Representative from Price has withdrawn her membership from the American Legislative Exchange Council – known as ALEC - just before the group convenes in Salt Lake City next week.  Democrat Christine Watkins says the goals of the conservative Council no longer align with the values of her district.
