MADISON - Wisconsin lawmakers announced Wednesday they were forming a bipartisan millennial caucus in hopes of finding common ground on technology, entrepreneurship and other issues.
The Wisconsin Future Caucus is being chaired by Rep. Amanda Stuck (D-Appleton) and Rep. Adam Neylon (R-Pewaukee). It includes about 20 members, with slightly more Democrats than Republicans, Neylon said.
The group is an outgrowth of the Millennial Action Project, a national organization with caucuses in 18 other states.
"This is not about being at the kid's table. It's about being the adults in the room," said Steven Olikara, a co-founder of the Millennial Action Project and a Brookfield native.
Neylon said he believes the group can work on "generational" issues that don't cut along partisan lines, such as clearing the way for self-driving cars.
"I believe in this generation," Neylon said.
Said Stuck: "There are more areas where we agree and can work together than where we disagree."
