The Capitol Connection

A fifth-generation Wisconsinite, Dave grew up in a family business, seeing firsthand the barriers to success big government places in front of small business. Hired out of college as an aide to Congressman Paul Ryan, Dave worked the next nine years helping Ryan advance the cause of limited government and the free enterprise system - while also holding a job in the private sector. Elected to represent the 83rd Assembly District in a special election in May of 2011, Dave has fought alongside Governor Walker to put Wisconsin's economy back on track, balancing the budget for the first time in over a decade, enacting concealed carry legislation and helping lead the fight against ObamaCare in Wisconsin. Before his election, Dave also served in various leadership positions in his church and also served on the Village of Big Bend Board of Trustees. In his free time, Dave enjoys spending time with his family, hunting and bowfishing. Dave and his wife, Amy, make their home in the Town of Vernon with their five children.

Right the Rules

As you may have heard, the State Assembly is beginning a massive endeavor this session. That endeavor is a complete review of our state’s 11,764 pages of administrative rules. Dubbed “Right the Rules”, this program is the next step in lifting the burden our state has put on our job creators and taxpayers. Below are several helpful resources to explain this program, as well as contact information for you to submit your own ideas on which rules need to be changed.

As Chairman of the Assembly Committee on Financial Institutions, I will be undertaking the review of our state’s banking, lending and securities codes. As I am also a member of the Committees on Government Operations and State Licensing, Insurance, Judiciary, Family Law, and Campaigns and Elections, I will have the opportunity to “Right the Rules” in those respective committees as well. I look forward to tackling this project and continuing the process of reducing the burden our state has imposed on its citizens. As always, your suggestions and feedback are appreciated.
