A couple of Fiberal groups got the attention they sought, during a press conference at the Iowa Statehouse to criticize the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).

According to Lisa Graves, executive director of the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) ---

What this agenda is, is not a home-grown, Iowa agenda addressing the concerns and clamoring of Iowa constituents about what would make their lives better.

That was mighty nice of them to come all the way from Madison, Wisconsin, where CMD is based, to tell Iowans what they need.

And the scientific community is united in that fact.

The other group, Progress Iowa, criticized ALEC for not releasing names of donors who fund the group.

Progress Iowa  does not release names of their donors either, but say their situation is different because ALEC operates on a much larger scale.
