About ALEC
ALEC is a corporate bill mill. It is not just a lobby or a front group; it is much more powerful than that. Through ALEC, corporations hand state legislators their wishlists to benefit their bottom line. Corporations fund almost all of ALEC's operations. They pay for a seat on ALEC task forces where corporate lobbyists and special interest reps vote with elected officials to approve “model” bills.

Background

Previously, Woods worked as the Manager of Governmental Affairs for the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association from June 2007 through June 2010. Prior to that, from 2006 through 2007, Woods worked as an Investigator for US Investigative Services.[2]

In his role as Task Force Director, Woods has spoken publicly in favor of states seizing federal land via Eminent Domain laws, in order to avoid federal efforts to protect natural resources (and possibly so the states can allow corporations access to the land for energy exploration and development).[3]
