MADISON – Today, Assembly Democratic Leader Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) announced that he will be appointing Representative Evan Goyke (D-Milwaukee) and Representative Greta Neubauer (D-Racine) to the Legislature’s powerful Joint Committee on Finance (JFC) for the 2021-22 legislative session.

gordon_hintz-informal“Representative Goyke and Representative Neubauer understand the values and priorities important to people across Wisconsin. I am confident in their ability to help our state navigate these challenging times brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic,” Rep. Hintz stated. “As members of the Joint Committee on Finance they will also champion the long-term investments in public schools, transportation infrastructure, and health care our state needs.”

“Representative Goyke’s experience on this committee will help provide strong leadership as we move into the process of debating Governor Evers’ proposed state budget. I value Rep. Goyke’s legal background and ability to take complex subject areas and break them down for the committee and the people of Wisconsin. I am always impressed by his methodical work.

I am also honored to appoint my colleague Representative Greta Neubauer. Greta is a thoughtful, hardworking public servant who has been impressive since the first day she came to the Capitol. I know she will bring a new and unique perspective to the committee. Both members will play a key role in helping to shape a budget that helps the people of our state.”

The JFC is the principal legislative committee charged with the review of all state appropriations and revenues, including a comprehensive review of the Governor’s biennial budget recommendations.  The committee has 16 members, comprised of 12 Republicans and 4 Democrats. Representative Goyke and Representative Neubauer welcomed their appointments, and are looking forward to the process of beginning work on the biennial budget.

Goyke stated. “As we determine our priorities moving forward, I will utilize my own experience and expertise to ensure that everyone’s voice is heard when making important policy decisions.”

greta-neubauer“I am honored and deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve on the Joint Committee on Finance in the coming legislative session,” Neubauer said. “We are at a critical point in our state’s history, and the upcoming budget will be the most important in over a decade as we respond to the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. I want to thank Democratic Leader Hintz for his confidence in me, and I look forward to stepping up to meet these challenges and serving my constituents and the people of Wisconsin in this additional capacity. Let’s get to work on a budget that works for everyone in Wisconsin.”
