August tapped to chair two committees
LAKE GENEVA Rep. Tyler August (R-Lake Geneva) was named to seven key committees in the State Assembly, and will chair two of them, according to a release from his office. The sophomore legislator from the town of Geneva represents the 32nd Assembly District.
“I’m looking forward to building upon the achievements of the previous legislative session,” said August. “I’m excited and honored to serve a second term and am eager to roll up my sleeves and continue making Wisconsin a better place to live, work, and retire.”
August will serve as the Chairman of both the Government Operations & State Licensure Committee as well as the Joint Survey Committee on Tax Exemptions. August was named Vice-Chairman of the Labor Committee and will be a member of the Health, Judiciary, and State Affairs committees as well as a member of the Joint Committee for Review of Administrative Rules. Representative Robin Vos (R-Burlington), who will serve as the new Speaker for the State Assembly this session, appointed August to the committees.
Due to redistricting changes the 32nd Assembly District boundaries have changed. The District now encompasses portions of Walworth County including the municipalities of Delavan, Lake Geneva, East Troy, and Genoa City, as well as the town of Wheatland in Kenosha County and part of the town of Burlington in Racine County.
