Contact: Speaker Robin Vos (608) 266-3387
Madison…Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) would like to announce that Rep. John Nygren (R-Marinette) will continue as the Assembly Chair of the Joint Committee on Finance (JFC), the budget-writing committee responsible for approving state expenditures, for the next legislative session beginning in January.
“John has done outstanding work leading the budget committee. Wisconsin is definitely better off because of his conservative leadership,” said Speaker Vos. “With the expected decrease in revenues due to the coronavirus, his experience and expertise will be greatly needed to deliver another balanced budget that protects Wisconsin taxpayers.”
Rep. Nygren was first elected to the Assembly in 2006. He will be serving his fifth term as the JFC co-chair for Assembly Republicans.
