Last week, I was chosen as one of the Co-Leaders for Wisconsin Honorary Troop 1912 and participated in the investiture ceremony at the Capitol. 

This Week: Budget Public Hearings

As a member of the Joint Finance Committee (JFC), I have been listening to testimony from citizens of Wisconsin all across the state. The committee held public hearings in Brillion, Milwaukee, Rice Lake and Reedsburg. Following the public hearings, the committee will begin to hold executive meetings on the budget in April, hoping to complete committee action before Memorial Day. The budget will then head to the Assembly and Senate floor. The governor is expected to sign the budget into law by the end of June.

If you would like to send your comments on the budget to the committee, you can do so by emailing

Blackhawk Technical College Tour

In early March, I had the pleasure of showing Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch around the 31st Assembly District. One of our stops was at the new Advanced Manufacturing Center for Blackhawk Technical College.

Here's a link to a video of our tour:
