ALEC Disbands Task Force Responsible for Voter ID

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

The American Legislative Exchange Council, a conservative non-profit, is making headlines for their decision to disband its "Public Safety and Elections Task Force." The Task Force was a major policy group responsible for lobbying voter ID and "stand your ground" laws throughout the country. Their decision comes two weeks after major companies including Coca Cola, Kraft, and the software firm Intuit announced they would be ending their membership, ostensibly over disagreements with ALEC's policy positions. Who is this group and why does their decision matter? For the answer, we speak with Adam Sorensen, associate editor at TIME Magazine.
