Today, the 101st session of the Wisconsin Legislature begins with the inauguration of the State Senate and State Assembly.
Governor Walker released the following statement regarding the upcoming legislative session:
I look forward to working with all four legislative caucuses to help improve our state for the next generation.
Congratulations are in order for incoming Speaker Robin Vos, Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, and Minority Leader Chris Larson. Your leadership position comes with the responsibility to leave any lingering disagreements in the past and look for innovative ways to move Wisconsin forward.
Working together with both Republicans and Democrats, we will focus on policies that help the private sector create jobs, transform education, reform government, develop our workforce, and improve our infrastructure.
