Petro, Executive Vice President of the Committee for Economic Development (CED), a nonpartisan business led public policy organization comprised 180 senior executives of the Fortune 500 and above.  Mr. Petro will give a national perspective on the growing movement toward business' embrace of disclosure of political contributions.  CED has sponsored several polls nationally and in New Mexico on business attitudes toward disclosure.  Mr. Petro will also discuss the findings of CED's Crony Capitalism study.
