2023-24 Legislative Session: Joint Finance Committee Members

The 16-member Joint Committee on Finance (or Joint Finance Committee, JFC) is among the most important committees of the Wisconsin Legislature. It is responsible for writing the biennial state budget and has the authority to approve requests for funding, agency position authority, and state lawsuit settlements.

The committee has an equal number of members from the Assembly and Senate. Because the Republican Party nearly holds two-thirds legislative majorities in both houses, Republican caucus leaders are able to appoint most of the members of the committee.
