Speaker Vos Statement on Foxconn Announcement

July 26, 2017

Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement in regards to the Foxconn decision to build its first U.S. manufacturing plant in Wisconsin. Speaker Vos joined President Donald Trump, Speaker Paul Ryan, Governor Scott Walker and company officials for the announcement at the White House.

“This is a day to remember in Wisconsin; this is a huge opportunity for our state. The selection of Wisconsin will impact generations of families. The manufacturing plant will provide thousands of new, good paying jobs and spur economic growth throughout our state. The company’s choice is a testament to our pro-business climate and fantastic workforce.

“We want our children and their children to stay and raise their families in our state. We want them to have good paying jobs and a vibrant economy. Today marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter in the future of the Badger State.

“Governor Walker has been a key player in making this deal happen; but it all started with President Trump.  I would like to thank them both for their leadership, and for bringing this transformational economic opportunity to Wisconsin.  I appreciate being included in the discussions that allowed me to be a strong advocate for southeast Wisconsin.”
