MADISON, Wis. - Newly selected state Assembly Speaker Robin Vos tells his Republican colleagues that he will work together with Democrats to set a new tone in Wisconsin.
Vos was unopposed for speaker Tuesday. He will take over when the Legislature reconvenes in January with Republicans in control of the Assembly just as they were the prior two years.
But Vos says no party has a monopoly on good ideas and he wants to be inclusive in how he leads.
Vos also promises to carry out an aggressive agenda, focused on reforming the state's income tax code, balancing the state budget, cutting regulations and improving education.
Rep. Scott Suder was also selected by GOP lawmakers as Republican majority leader for the next two years.
