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. Learn more at the Center for Media and Democracy's ALECexposed.org, and check out breaking news on our ExposedbyCMD.org site.


Before joining PhRMA, Corcoran worked as a health policy counsel and oversight counsel for the U.S. House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee. She also formerly served as an associate independent counsel in the Office of Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr.[3]

She was a lobbyist for PhRMA in California in 2005.[4]
