He served 16 years in the Wisconsin State Legislature, including two terms on the budget-writing Joint Finance Committee, and was elected by his colleagues as Assembly Majority Leader and Assembly Speaker. Huebsch was also appointed by Governor Scott Walker as the Secretary of the Department of Administration, providing advice on state policy and operations and management of state cabinet agencies. He attended Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Okla.
“We are very pleased to welcome Commissioner Huebsch to the Board of Directors. His background and experience with budgets, operations and policy issues, along with his contributions to NARUC’s committees, make him a valuable asset to the board,” said President Wagner.
“I am honored to receive this appointment from President Wagner to serve on the NARUC board, as this group has considerable responsibility, influence and accountability for the Association’s advocacy efforts and service to members,” said Commissioner Huebsch. “I am looking forward to serving with colleagues from across the nation to address the challenges facing regulators.”
