into Law

As the weather shifts from summer to fall, we are also seeing an exciting legislative transformation in Wisconsin. Both the Foxconn bill and the budget have been signed into law by the Governor.  I was able to attend the Foxconn bill signing, which was a truly memorable event.

The deal with Foxconn is one that will revitalize the Wisconsin economy and launch us to the forefront of the global manufacturing market. According to a UW-Madison study, the company could generate up to 39,000 direct and indirect jobs in the state, providing a $4 return for every $1 invested. The average salary is projected to be $53,875 a year. 

Also, you can feel confident in the state's investment because of the safeguards and clawback provisions included in the deal. Tax incentives are not guaranteed, but are based on the company's actual performance. Foxconn is set to break ground in Racine County and be operational by 2020.

The budget is another piece of legislation that makes me excited about Wisconsin's future. After many of you reached out to me and my colleagues and made your opinions known, legislators worked hard to create the best budget for the people of Wisconsin.

This budget increases state aid to K-12 education, freezes tuition for another two years, provides additional funding for workforce development, addresses the state's transportation funding issue, holds steady or cuts a variety of taxes, and expands mental health services.

Fall is in the air in Wisconsin, and so is positive, promising change.

Holiday House Visit

    I was out in district this week and stopped by the Holiday House in Manitowoc. For the past 60 years, this organization has been making a difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities by providing vocational, social, educational, and recreational opportunities. Holiday House is having a genuine impact on the lives of many that live with disabilities in our community, and I was honored to learn more about what they do.
