Statement of Senator Jon Erpenbach on the partisan passage of the FOXCONN deal out of the Joint Committee on Finance

“I would love to support a proposal to help create 13,000 new jobs in Wisconsin but I cannot give away our water, wetlands and environment to get there. The FOXCONN deal is the biggest taxpayer give away to a foreign company in the history of the United States. It is our responsibility to make sure we take care of Wisconsin taxpayers and our future as a state. Being responsible is to protect our environment, making sure our taxpayers have protection for their investment and making our workers and companies a priority; the current deal does none of these in law.”
