Corrigan Will Work On Child Welfare Issues On National Level

LANSING, Mich. (AP) – After a long career in government, Maura Corrigan says she’ll be working for a conservative Washington think tank.

Corrigan lately was director of the Department of Human Services after a dozen years on the Michigan Supreme Court. She says she’ll be writing about child welfare and poverty for the American Enterprise Institute.

The 66-year-old Corrigan says she won’t be moving to Washington, although she may get opportunities to testify to Congress. She says she hopes to take what’s she learned in Michigan and apply it to national policies.

Corrigan worked for the Wayne County prosecutor and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Detroit before eventually becoming a judge on the state appeals court.
