Ballweg Appointed To Task Force

State Assembly Speaker Robin Vos recently appointed State Representative Joan Ballweg of Markesan to the Speaker’s bipartisan Task Force on Foster Care. The task force will study and create policy initiatives to support children who are currently in the system. Members of the Task Force will travel the state and hold public hearings to gather feedback from foster care children, parents, stakeholders, and experts.  Ballweg says she’s grateful for the appointment and excited to further her knowledge on issues affecting children and that put a spotlight on foster care in Wisconsin.
