Rep. Steineke Statement on Speaker’s Task Force on Racial Disparities

MADISON – Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna), Co-Chair of the Speaker’s Task Force on Racial Disparities, released the following statement:

“When I agreed to be a co-chair for the Speaker’s Task Force on Racial Disparities, I knew we would have our work cut out for us in terms of finding common ground in what has sometimes been a very divisive issue. Through our diverse 33-person membership and in meetings held around the state, we have succeeded in finding areas of consensus and are hopeful that these will translate into real differences for equity in our state. I’m proud of the bipartisan work we’re doing, and look forward to continuing making progress on this important issue."
