MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Democratic State Representatives Cory Mason of Racine and Jon Richards of Milwaukee have been re-appointed to the Wisconsin Legislature’s powerful budget-writing committee.
They will serve on the Joint Finance Committee for another two years after being appointed by Minority Leader Peter Barca.
Because they control the Legislature, Republicans will hold a 12 to 4 majority on that committee.
Members will review Governor Scott Walker’s budget proposal, then send its own version of the spending plan to the full Legislature for consideration and a vote.
Walker’s budget is expected to be introduced in February.
