State Senator Frank Lasee (R-De Pere) will leave the Senate for a position in Gov. Scott Walker’s administration, Lasee announced Friday.
Lasee issued the following statement regarding his appointment to serve as the Division Administrator for Worker’s Compensation in the Department of Workforce Development:
“It is an honor to have been asked by Governor Walker to serve as the Division Administrator for Worker’s Compensation in the Department of Workforce Development. I look forward to working with Secretary Allen and my co-workers in the Department of Workforce Development.
Earlier this year the Worker’s Compensation Research Institute recognized Wisconsin as being first among the 18 states studied for lowest level of attorney involvement in worker’s compensation cases. This study showed Wisconsin’s Worker’s Compensation programs promote rapid resolution of disputes and those quick determinations lead to lower costs and faster payment of benefits.”
“I thank my constituents and the people of Wisconsin for the honor and privilege of serving them and our state as their State Senator. I look forward to serving our state in my new role as Division Administrator for Worker’s Compensation.”
