Bies To Chair Assembly's Corrections Committee

 

State Representative Garey Bies (R-Sister Bay) will chair the Assembly's Corrections Committee and serve as vice chair of the Tourism Committee in the upcoming Legislative Session.

The selections were made by Assembly Speaker-Elect Robin Vos (R-Rochester).

"I appreciate Speaker-Elect Vos' continued confidence in me to oversee issues affecting our correctional system," Bies said in a statement. "Wisconsin's corrections budget is a great expense to taxpayers. One thing I will do as chair is to explore cost-efficient alternatives to address the problem while also maintaining public safety."

Bies spent 30 years with the Door County Sheriff's Department, 12 of them as chief deputy.

Bies currently operates a restaurant in Sister Bay and says he's honored to be vice chair of the Assembly's Tourism Committee.

"Tourism is a major industry in Wisconsin and vital to the economic well-being of the First Assembly District, said Bies. "As a small business owner in the district, I understand firsthand the importance of this issue."

A complete listing of the standing committees including their chairs and vice-chairs for the 2013-2014 Legislative Session can be found here.

The new session gets underway January 7, 2013.
