State Representative Jeff Stone, who represents Greendale and Greenfield, was named this week Chairman of the Assembly Committee on Small Business Development and Vice Chairman of the Assembly Committee on Health.
“I am honored to be serving as Chair of the Assembly Committee on Small Business Development," Stone said in a release. "Being a small business owner for over 25 years, I know first-hand how challenging, but also how rewarding, starting and growing a small business can be. Small businesses have historically been the backbone of our economy. I look forward to working on important issues such as ways to encourage more start-up opportunities and entrepreneurship in our state."
Dr. Erik Severson (R – Star Prairie) will take Stone's former position as Chair of the Assembly Committee on Health.
"Although I have new responsibilities, I will enjoy the opportunity to remain involved in health care issues important to the State of Wisconsin as I continue to serve on the committee as vice chairman,” Stone said.
