August Elected Speaker Pro Tempore

This past week I was sworn in for my fourth term in the State Assembly. Iím looking forward to continuing to reduce the tax burden, cut red tape for our small businesses, shrink the size of government, and make Wisconsin a great place to live and to do business.

Iím excited to announce that I will continue to serve as the Speaker Pro Tempore of the State Assembly for the third straight session. The Speaker Pro Tempore is the second highest constitutional office in the Assembly, and primarily consists of presiding over debate on the floor when the Assembly is in session. I will also serve on the Assembly committees on Organization, Government Accountability and Oversight, Insurance, the Joint Committee on Legislative Council, and I will be the co-chair of the Joint Survey Committee on Tax Exemptions.

 State of the State Address

Governor Walker's State of the State Address will be this Tuesday, January 10th at 3PM. Iím looking forward to hearing the Governorís ideas for this coming session, and I encourage you to watch and see the Governorís plan on how to move Wisconsin forward. You can stream the address on the Governorís website, www.walker.wi.gov.
