MADISON – Today is Inauguration Day for the 103rd Session of the Wisconsin State Legislature. A formal swearing-in ceremony, conducted by State Supreme Court Chief Justice Roggensack, was held at 2:00pm in the Assembly Chambers. Following the ceremony, Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna) released the following statement:
“Inauguration Day is a time to remember our oaths and responsibilities as we begin the biennium, but it is also a time to celebrate and share this part of our lives with friends and family. We are all grateful to be surrounded by individuals who support us.
“Since the election in November this historic GOP majority has been eager to get to work in Madison. It is a tremendous honor to lead these 64 legislators for another session. I also look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle as we begin the Assembly’s 103rd session.”
First elected in 2010, Representative Jim Steineke was recently elected by his peers to begin serving his second term as Assembly Majority Leader. This will be his fourth term representing the 5th Assembly District.
