Corbett and Kimel were integral to the IWLCA’s push for legislative change and support. The legislation committee of Meredith Black (Marquette), Tracy Coyne (George Washington), Kerri Whitaker (Penn), Lindsey Munday (USC), Liz Robertshaw (Boston University) and Katie Woods (UConn) has continued to keep the proposal forging ahead.
