InfoDale W. Schultz was born in Madison, Wisconsin in 1953. His mother was a successful attorney while his father owned and operated a local pharmacy in the old Washington Hotel. Dale attended Madison Central High School and graduated from Madison West High School.

Dale was elected to the Assembly in 1982 and to the State Senate in 1991. During his tenure in the legislature, he has earned a reputation as a consensus builder who can reach across party lines to get results. He’s been recognized for his work on agriculture and insurance issues. Following the 2004 elections, his colleagues in the State Senate chose him as the Senate Majority Leader. His experience in both houses of the legislature, and his time on the Joint Committee on Finance help to make him an effective leader.

In addition to his official legislative duties, Senator Schultz is a member of the Wisconsin Historical Society Board of Curators. He’s active with the National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL), the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), and the National Conference of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL).

Schultz’ committee appointments for the 2009-10 Legislative Session include the Committee on Public Health, Senior Issues, Long Term Care and Job Creation, the Joint Committee on Retirement Systems and the Joint Legislative Council.

Schultz is a 1975 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he played basketball and was member of the UW national champion rowing team. He and his wife, Rachel, own and manage their family’s farm, which became a Wisconsin Century Farm in 1998. He is a member of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau, the Masons, and the Lions. In his free time, Dale enjoys, as he puts it, “watching the feathers fly” hunting game birds, golfing, and spending time with his family.

Dale and Rachel have two children, Katie, a recent graduate of UW-Madison, and Amanda, a student at UW-Madison.
