A former La Crosse area lawmaker is stepping down from the Wisconsin Public Service Commission.
Mike Huebsch of West Salem announced that he will retire on Feb. 3, with a year left in his term on the PSC.
Republican Huebsch represented the 94th Assembly District in Madison for 16 years, and served two years as Assembly speaker before former Gov. Scott Walker named him administration secretary.
Huebsch has been on the three-person, utility-regulating commission since 2015.
Gov. Tony Evers will appoint a successor.
The retirement will end 25 years in state government for Huebsch, who first went to Madison representing the 94th District in 1995 after unseating long-time Democratic Rep. Virgil Roberts.
Huebsch was a La Crosse County supervisor when he won his first election to the Assembly.
