Madison– State Representative John Nygren (R-Marinette), Co-chair of the Joint Committee on Finance released the following statement regarding new appointments to the Joint Committee on Finance:

“I would like to extend my congratulations to Representative Terry Katsma (R-Oostburg) and Representative Shannon Zimmerman (R-River Falls) for being appointed to the Joint Committee on Finance. Additionally, I would like to commend Speaker Vos for two excellent choices.”

“As we begin the next budget process, I have the utmost confidence in their ability to contribute to our already talented budget team. Together, they both possess unique capabilities and experiences which will prove valuable over the next year. Representative Zimmerman, a successful business owner, brings valuable private sector expertise while Representative Katsma has an over 30 year banking career which will be beneficial as we craft a balanced budget.”

“I would also like to applaud Representative Loudenbeck for being appointed Vice-chair on the Joint Committee on Finance. Over the last budget, Representative Loudenbeck exhibited the qualities desired for a leader in our caucus. I look forward to continuing to build upon our strong relationship.”

“This next budget will present unique challenges and I am excited to have a wide array of experiences and knowledge on the assembly budget team at our disposal. I am confident that with their help we will continue to build upon the robust conservative values we have implemented over the last few budgets.”

“Lastly, I would like to thank outgoing members Rep. Mary Felzkowski and Rep. Dale Kooyenga for their dedication and service on the committee over the last several years. I wish Mary the best of luck in her new role as Assistant Majority Leader and Dale continued success in the State Senate.”
