Speaker Robin Vos announces Rep. Mark Born will co-chair Joint Finance Committee

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) announced Wednesday, Dec. 2, Rep. Mark Born (R-Beaver Dam) will take over as Assembly Chair of the Joint Committee on Finance (JFC) and Rep. Amy Loudenbeck (R-Clinton) will continue as Vice Chair of the powerful budget-writing committee.

“Assembly Republicans have a remarkable team at the helm of the Joint Finance Committee,” said Speaker Vos. “Both legislators have a wealth of experience putting together conservative state budgets. I’m certain they’ll continue to look out for the best interests of Wisconsin taxpayers.”

Rep. Born’s appointment will take effect at the end of the day Dec. 2, due to the departure of former chair Rep. John Nygren who is leaving to pursue opportunities in the private sector. Rep. Born was elected to the Assembly in 2012 and has served on the JFC since 2017. Rep. Loudenbeck was elected in 2010 and this will be her fourth term on the Joint Finance Committee.

The remaining Assembly JFC members will be announced in the coming days.
