Wisconsin’s Republican-controlled state assembly has passed a bill that paves the way for a 3 billion dollars incentives package for a proposed liquid-crystal display plant for Taiwan’s Foxconn. The vote comes just three weeks after President Trump and Governor Scott Walker announced the deal for Foxconn to invest up to 10 billion dollars on the display panel manufacturing facility. It could employ up to 13-thousand people. Republican State Assemblyman Travis Tranel of Cuba City voted for the measure. Opponents of the legislation question the cost to taxpayers and weakening of environmental protections. Trannel says the bill will have zero impact on the environment. Tranel says he understands the financial impact the legislation would have on taxpayers, but in the long term the state’s economy will be better off. Tranel says Foxconn will bring good paying jobs to the state. Foxconn hopes to break ground for the new facility in 2018, which would be located in either Racine or Kenosha county. The assembly passed the measure on a 59-to-30 vote. It must also be passed by the Senate before moving on to the Governor office for his signature.
