In November 2016, Becky Corbin was elected to her third term representing Chester County’s 155th Legislative District in the Pennsylvania House.
Corbin serves on the following House committees: Judiciary, Environmental Resources and Energy Policy, Health, and Urban Affairs.
As a state representative, Corbin is working to improve the business climate in Pennsylvania by reducing the tax and regulatory burdens on companies doing business in the Commonwealth. By creating a business-friendly environment, Pennsylvania will attract companies that will bring needed jobs and promote economic development. She also seeks to reduce the burden on taxpayers by keeping a close eye on state spending and finding ways to cut government waste.
Public safety is another of Corbin’s priorities. A former commissioner of the Brandywine Regional Police, she supports initiatives that empower law enforcement to carry out their jobs and protect them in the line of duty.
Corbin has strongly advocated for laws to battle Pennsylvania’s growing heroin epidemic. She has supported legislation giving police officers and firefighters the ability to administer a life-saving heroin antidote. She has also been actively involved in the effort to place prescription drug drop boxes in public locations so that residents can properly dispose of unused or unwanted painkillers, keeping them off the streets and out of the hands of addicted persons.
Prior to her first election in 2012, Corbin had already served the 155th district for 21 years as a legislative aide to former state representatives Curt Schroder and Jim Gerlach.
A graduate of Chatham University in Pittsburgh, Corbin majored in chemistry, knowledge that has been invaluable to her throughout her public life. After college, she worked as a forensic chemist in the state crime lab of the Commonwealth of Virginia before returning to Pennsylvania to pursue a career in the pharmaceutical industry.
Corbin has served as a member of the Zoning Hearing Board and the Board of Auditors. Additionally, she served as a consultant to the Delaware County Solid Waste Authority where she was a member of the Conestoga Landfill Advisory Council.
Corbin lives in East Brandywine Township with her husband Michael, where she has resided for nearly 40 years. They have two children and two grandchildren.
