Madison, Wis. – 
Senator Rob Stafsholt (R – New Richmond) issued the following statement as the new legislative session begins:

“I look forward to continue working hard for the people of the 10th Senate District this legislative session. The message I hear all across my district is the need to focus on workforce development to fill job openings at our local businesses, keep taxes down and rein in government overreach.  I will continue working in a bipartisan manner with my colleagues to achieve these priorities.”

Senator Stafsholt will be Chair of the Committee on Financial Institutions & Sporting Heritage, Vice-Chair of the Committee on Economic Development & Technical Colleges and serve on the Committee on Housing, Rural Issues & Forestry. In addition, he will continue his work from Chairing the Study Committee on Occupational Licenses.   

“We must reform our state agencies to be more responsive and accountable to our residents. I will continue my work from last session of implementing long-term solutions that will fix the problems plaguing the Department of Safety and Professional Services. I truly believe my study committee was able to come up with several long-term solutions and I look forward to crafting those ideas into legislation and starting them in the committee process.”

“It’s an honor serving the people of the 10th Senate District as your State Senator. I always welcome people’s thoughts and ideas on current issues and legislation so feel free to reach out so that I can do my best to represent you. As always, I am committed to being your voice in Madison.”
