MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The final two members of Wisconsin’s new Ethics Commission to oversee campaign finance, lobbying and ethics laws have been appointed.

Gov. Scott Walker announced the appointments of two former judges Thursday.

They are Mac Davis, a former Republican state senator and Waukesha County circuit judge, and Robert Kinney, a reserve judge who spent more than 30 years as an Oneida County circuit judge.

Davis was nominated by Republican legislative leaders and Kinney by Democrats.

They join four other previously appointed commission members.

Former Assembly Majority Leader Pat Strachota and Wisconsin Republican Party Secretary Katie McCallum are Republican appointees. Former Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager and Milwaukee attorney David Halbrooks are Democratic appointees.

The commission officially begins its work on June 30.
