Senator Shilling reappoints two to Joint Finance Committee

Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling reappointed Senators Jon Erpenbach and LaTonya Johnson to serve on the Joint Committee on Finance for the 2019-2020 legislative session.

“Sen. Erpenbach and Sen. Johnson have been outspoken advocates for working families in Wisconsin and understand the importance of investing in our future,” said Sen. Shilling. “Their years of experience and commitment to strengthening Wisconsin’s economy will help to focus our upcoming budget discussions on the important issues at hand. I look forward to working with Senators Erpenbach and Johnson as Wisconsin Democrats continue to advocate for investments in education, worker training and infrastructure to boost our economy and create new jobs.”

“It is an honor to serve another term on the Joint Finance Committee and work with Governor-elect Evers to repair and rebuild Wisconsin,” said Sen. Erpenbach. “Our economy needs a jumpstart, our roads and bridges need immediate repairs and our communities need more support for local schools. I am grateful for this opportunity to stand up for Wisconsin’s working families and advocate for a more sustainable and forward-looking state budget.”

“I’m honored to serve on the Joint Finance Committee. It’s an important time for communities across Wisconsin and I will fight for commonsense bipartisan solutions that invest in our schools and infrastructure,” said Sen. Johnson. “I will continue to advocate for working families, reforming our justice system and ensure that Wisconsin’s budget reflects the values that we all share.”
