Hundreds of protestors descended on the Palmer House Hilton in downtown Chicago.

They're rallying against the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC.

The group of state legislators and business leaders is holding its 40th anniversary conference there.

The protestors accused ALEC of having what they call a "corporate takeover agenda."

ALEC has not yet returned ABC7's calls for comment.
