MADISON – State Representative Jessie Rodriguez (R-Oak Creek) took the oath of office during an Inauguration Day ceremony in the Assembly Chambers Tuesday afternoon. The ceremony marks the beginning of her sixth term representing the 21st Assembly District in the 106th Wisconsin State Legislature. Rep. Rodriguez is one of 64 Republicans sworn into the Assembly for the 2023-2024 legislative session.
“I’m honored that the members of my community have supported me by sending me back to Madison to represent them this session, and eager to get back to work for the 21st Assembly District and the residents of our great state,” commented Rep. Rodriguez.
“This session my colleagues and I will continue to focus on growing our economy, addressing the workforce shortage, keeping our communities safe, and ensuring every child has access to the best education possible,” said Rodriguez.
Rep. Rodriguez has been reappointed to serve as a member of the Joint Committee on Finance (JFC) this session. JFC serves as Wisconsin’s budget-writing committee and is tasked with reviewing the state’s revenues and appropriations on a biennial basis. This will be her second session serving on the committee.
“With a projected $6.5 billion budget surplus, we have a great opportunity to make good on our promises by funding our priorities and delivering tax relief for Wisconsin’s taxpayers,” proclaimed Rodriguez. “I look forward to working with my colleagues to craft another responsible budget that continues to move Wisconsin forward.”
