April 8, 2015News Releases

State Senator Wil Schroder was appointed by Senate President Robert Stivers to The Council of State Governments’ (CSG) Suggested State Legislation Committee and the Southern Legislative Conference’s (SLC) Fiscal Affairs & Government Operations Committee. Sen. Schroder practices part time with Dinsmore & Shohl’s Finance Department.

The CSG, a national organization based out of Lexington, Ky., encourages multi-state problem solving, develops leadership skills, and fosters collaboration among all three branches of state government while SLC fosters and encourages intergovernmental cooperation among its 15-member states.

The Suggested State Legislation Committee oversees the Suggested State Legislation Program, a series of compilations of draft legislation of current importance to states. As a member of the committee, Sen. Schroder will identify, review and disseminate state legislation on topics of major interest with the goal of sharing innovations in state governance.

The Fiscal Affairs & Government Operations (FAGO) Committee of the SLC focuses on the fiscal issues impacting state budgets and finances. The Committee’s membership includes many of the finance and appropriations chairs from across the South along with other prominent fiscal stake holders, both legislators and legislative staff, in the different state legislatures.

“This is a great opportunity to learn what other states around the country are doing, and to bring best practice ideas back home to the Commonwealth as we strive for stable and effective fiscal policy,” said Sen. Schroder.

Sen. Schroder represents the 24th District made up of Campbell, Pendleton and Bracken Counties in the Kentucky Senate. He has also been assigned by leadership to the Judiciary Committee where he serves as the Vice-Chairman, to the Appropriations and Revenue Committee and to the Economic Development Committee. A member of the Republican Majority, Schroder was also one of five senators assigned to a conference committee to negotiate with House Democrats on key heroin legislation.
