MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos has created three bipartisan task forces to issue recommendations for law changes in the coming months.

The groups announced Tuesday will study Alzheimer’s and dementia, urban education and youth workforce readiness.

The Republican-led committees will begin their work this summer with the goal of completing it by the end of next year.

Vos’s office says the Alzheimer’s task force will look at ways to reduce the cost of long-term care, as well as promote community-based resources.

The urban school group will look at ways to improve education, including studying teacher recruitment and retention.

And the youth workforce group will look at ways to encourage young people to pursue careers in the trades, manufacturing industry and technical fields.
