Lee A. Nerison (born July 31, 1952) is a Wisconsin politician and legislator.

Born in La Crosse, Wisconsin, Nerison is in the agricultural business and lives in Westby, Wisconsin.[1] Nerison has served in the Wisconsin State Assembly as a member of the Republican Party since 2005.[2] He represents the 96th Assembly District, which includes all of Vernon and Crawford counties, and part of Monroe County.

Nerison is the Chair of the Wisconsin Assembly Committee on Agriculture. He is also a member of the Committee on Natural Resources and the Committee on Veterans and Military Affairs.[3]

On February 25, 2011, in the midst of the 2011 Wisconsin budget protests, Nerison was one of only four Republicans in the Wisconsin Assembly to vote against Governor Scott Walker's controversial budget repair bill.[4]

In March 2018, Nerison announced that he will be retiring from the Wisconsin State Assembly at the end of his current term. [5]
