Media conference Call Briefing: Exposing ALEC’s economic agenda in the states

Tomorrow at 1 pm the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) will host a media conference call on the economic policy agenda promoted by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). ALEC recently faced scrutiny for its promotion of the controversial “stand your ground” gun policy and strict voter identification laws. However, the group’s economic and fiscal policy agenda is less well-reported. The conference call will feature a panel of experts who have examined ALEC’s economic and fiscal policies and will share their findings on how these policies threaten investments important to economic growth.

Members of the media who would like to register for the conference call, contact Phoebe Silag or Donté Donald in the Economic Policy Institute media relations department at news@epi.org or 202.775.8810 to RSVP and for call-in information.
