This is about a week old, but I’m just catching up from a long Thanksgiving “weekend.”
Incoming Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson (D–Milwaukee) announced today the appointment of Senator Bob Wirch (D–Somers) and Senator Jennifer Shilling (D–La Crosse) to serve on the Joint Committee on Finance for the 2013-2014 Legislative Session.
“Sen. Wirch and Sen. Shilling have demonstrated that they are committed to working with fellow Democrats, Republican legislators, and the governor to move Wisconsin forward for all,” said Sen. Larson. “Not only do they have significant experience in the Legislature and have previously served on Joint Finance, but they are also proven champions of working families, economic development, and Wisconsin’s shared values.”
“I look forward to working with Senators Wirch and Shilling to create family supporting jobs for people across Wisconsin, increase economic development throughout the state, invest in our next generation of workers by protecting our K-12 schools, technical colleges, and universities, and improve accountability and transparency measures in state agencies,” said Sen. Larson.
