The Week in Review

Getting it Right

Next week, the Assembly Committee on Jobs and the Economy will vote on special session legislation, which would allow Foxconn Technology Group to build a 1.58 square mile manufacturing facility in southeastern Wisconsin; a $10 billion investment, expected to employ thousands of workers. This piece of legislation is arguably one of the most important bills that will go before the Assembly this session and requires careful consideration.

At the public hearing last week, committee members asked questions and expressed preliminary thoughts on the proposal. A variety of groups testified including state executives, local officials, the UW System, Marquette, the tech colleges, and the public with the hearing concluding around midnight.

The Foxconn project could have an enormously positive impact on our region. It is important we carefully vet this proposal to be certain this deal is right for Wisconsin and fair for taxpayers. Before we go to the floor to take such an important vote, I encourage you to contact me to share your support or opposition for this legislation.

Additionally, I encourage you to read this report that provides specific details and answers many questions related to the proposed deal.

I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this proposal.

Have a great weekend!
