CONTACT: Senator Howard Marklein, 608-266-0703
“I am honored to be trusted with the leadership of this important committee,” Marklein said. “I requested to be included on the Agriculture committee this session so that I can better represent the farmers in the communities I serve.”
“This committee assignment speaks to all of my strengths and areas of expertise,” Marklein said. “I have enjoyed chairing the Senate Committee on Revenue, Financial Institutions and Rural Issues for the last two sessions. We have done great work in tax reform, financial institution modernization and broadband in this committee. However, as the Senator of one of the most agriculturally dense and diverse parts of the state, I am looking forward adding agricultural issues to our work.”
Marklein served as Chair of the Senate Committee on Revenue, Financial Institutions and Rural Issues during the 2016-17 and 2017-18 legislative sessions. The new legislative session begins with inauguration day on January 7, 2019.
