WASHINGTON, D.C. – The White House announced that President Bush has nominated Mr. Steven Biskupic to be the next U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.

Mr. Biskupic has served as the Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of Wisconsin since 1989.  If confirmed by the Senate, he will replace Mr. Tom Schneider, a Clinton appointee, who left last year.

"I am pleased to hear that President Bush has nominated Steven Biskupic for the U.S. Attorney position in the Milwaukee-based Eastern District of Wisconsin," said Representative F. JAMES SENSENBRENNER, JR., (R-Menomonee Falls).  “Steve was one of three candidates selected by the Wisconsin Federal Nominating Commission for this position that I and Senators Kohl and Feingold presented to the President for his consideration in November.  Even though the other candidates - Judge John Franke and Francis Schmitz - are equally qualified for this position, only one person could be selected,” said Representative Sensenbrenner.

“I support the President in his choice.  As U.S. Attorney, Steve will be a force to be reckoned with.  His experience as a prosecutor, and Assistant U.S. Attorney make him eminently qualified to lead the fight against crime in Wisconsin’s Eastern District.  I hope the Senate moves quickly and confirms Steve’s nomination, so he can get started,” concluded Representative Sensenbrenner.
