MILWAUKEE – U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan will be the featured guest of an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Monday, Feb. 9, from 4 to 5 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

As the new chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee, Congressman Ryan will have a major role in shaping U.S. tax and trade policy. The Janesville Republican was the GOP’s vice-presidential candidate in 2012 but recently announced he won’t run for president in 2016. Ryan remains one of his party’s leading voices on economic issues, and in the past year has offered ideas to address the problem of poverty in America.

Seating for members of the general public is at capacity. For those who can’t attend in person, a “watch now” button on the registration page will provide access to a live video stream. Please note that this event is scheduled for 4 p.m., a departure from our typical lunchtime start.

Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community — the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
