Madison…Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) would like to announce that Rep. John Nygren (R-Marinette) will continue to be the Assembly Chair of the Joint Committee on Finance (JFC), the budget-writing committee responsible for approving state expenditures, for the next legislative session beginning in January.
