WASHINGTON, D.C. (WSAW) -- Now that former Wisconsin representative and house speaker Paul Ryan is leaving Washington, D.C., his successor Republican representative Bryan Steil has taken over and is talking about how he plans to fill Ryan's shoes.

"I think you work hard. I think you put your head down, you dive into the policy, you have conversations with your colleagues, you try to advance policies that continue to grow the economy. So I'm really looking forward to getting my nose to the grind stone, getting to work," he told NewsChannel 7's Washington D.C. Bureau.

Steil worked as an aide to Ryan for a year in 2003, and most recently stepped down from serving on the University of Wisconsin system's board of regents.
