Marinette Rep. John Nygren to co-chair powerful Joint Finance Committee

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - State Assembly Republican John Nygren of Marinette was named this afternoon as a co-chairman of the Legislature’s most powerful committee.

He and Senate Republican Alberta Darling of River Hills will run the Joint Finance panel which will hold hearings on the next state budget, and then make changes for both houses to consider in the spring.

Nygren replaces Racine County Republican Robin Vos, who was elected as the Assembly’s new speaker.

Darling will start her third year as a co-chair of the finance committee.

Nygren is best known for proposing a bill two years ago that repealed higher coverage limits for auto insurance, and removed some consumer protections.

Majority Republicans approved the measure, which un-did changes made by former Governor Jim Doyle when his fellow Democrats ran the Legislature.
