ALEC Convention in Arizona Draws Multiple Protests

As corporate lobbyists and state legislators from around the country filed into the Phoenix Westin Kierland Resort and Spa for a closed-door three-day convention of the American Legislative Exchange Council, they first had to pass by an energetic group of protesters.
