MADISON, Wis. – Today, Senator Devin LeMahieu (R-Oostburg) was reelected by his peers as the Senate Majority Leader in the Senate Republican Caucus for the 2023-2024 legislative session. He issued the following statement:
“I am honored to be re-elected as the Senate Majority Leader for this 106th Session of the Wisconsin Legislature. We have come back stronger than before and I intend to ensure our state continues to move forward with a budget and policies that support Wisconsin’s families and businesses.
I am proud of the hard work, time, and dedication of all those that led us to a supermajority in the Wisconsin State Senate. As I reflect on everything we have accomplished for the state, this is yet another victory worth celebrating.
We have much to be proud of from our work together so far. We passed a budget which provided a historic $3 billion tax cut that even Democrats voted for. We stopped Tony Evers’ attempts to classify private businesses as “unessential.” We also survived a legal challenge at the U.S. Supreme Court to ensure Wisconsin’s new Legislative districts are drawn with fairness and traditional redistricting criteria.
I hope to build on the momentum we have created over these last two years. This caucus will continue to workas an effective check on Tony Evers’ liberal agenda and his attempts to take Wisconsin backwards. The people of Wisconsin deserve strong leadership, sound economic policies and a legislature that listens to the concerns of our communities- with the largest Senate Majority since 1969, we plan to deliver just that.”
Senator Devin LeMahieu represents the 9th Senate District, which includes portions of Sheboygan, Manitowoc, and
Calumet Counties. He is currently serving as Majority Leader for the Wisconsin State Senate.
