This past Tuesday, I participated in my second Inauguration Ceremony at the State Capitol as your Representative from the 55th Assembly District. The ceremony is an exciting event that signals the official start of the next legislative session. Along with my fellow representatives, I took the oath of office for the 2017-18 Legislative Session as part of the 103rd Wisconsin State Legislature.

I am honored to have been re-elected to a second term in the State Assembly, and I look forward to continuing to serve as your State Representative. As always, I would like to encourage any constituents with questions or concerns to reach out to my office. I always enjoy meeting with constituents and am happy to do so either in-district or in Madison.

Appointment to the Joint Committee on Finance

In early December, I was appointed to the Joint Committee on Finance by Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester).
It’s an honor to have been chosen to serve on this incredibly important committee, and I look forward to bringing my extensive private sector experience as well as my legislative experience to the budget process.

“Representative Rohrkaste will be a great addition to the Joint Finance Committee,” said Speaker Vos. “As Chair of the Speaker’s Task Force on Alzheimer’s and Dementia, Representative Rohrkaste has shown excellent leadership and a willingness to work with others on important issues, each being essential attributes for a member of the committee.”

The Joint Committee on Finance is a 16-member standing committee of the Wisconsin Legislature. The committee's primary responsibility is to serve as the principal legislative committee charged with reviewing the state budget.
