Speaker Vos named Rep. Snyder Chairman of the Committee on Children and Families
Madison… Today Representative Patrick Snyder (Schofield) was named Chairman of the Committee on Children and Families for the 2019-2020 legislative session. Rep. Snyder made the following statement regarding the announcement of committees:
“It is truly an honor to be named Chairman of the Committee on Children and Families, after proudly serving as a member of the committee during my first term. Under the leadership of Representative Joel Kitchens in the 2017-2018 session, the committee passed numerous bills which make great strides in helping Wisconsin’s children and families become and remain prosperous.
After serving as co-chair of the Speaker’s Task Force on Foster Care, I know that our state still faces significant challenges in our foster care system, and the topic remains one of my highest priorities as I become Chairman of the Committee on Children and Families. I also recognize that there are many children and families that have not made contact with the system, but are, nonetheless, struggling. As chairman of the committee, I want to bring further attention on these individuals.
I am excited to begin serving as Chairman and I look forward to working with the committee members to continue the bipartisanship that has made the Committee on Children and Families successful.”
