Madison, Wisconsin – Today, Department of Administration Secretary Scott Neitzel, along with representatives from the Department of Natural Resources, Department of Revenue, Department of Transportation, Department of Workforce Development, Public Service Commission, and Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, appeared before the Assembly Committee on Jobs and the Economy to discuss Foxconn’s historic investment into the State of Wisconsin. Secretary Neitzel issued the following statement:
We are thrilled to work with the legislature on this once in a generation project. The 13,000 new family supporting jobs and $10 billion capital investment Foxconn will create in Wisconsin alone are historic, but what makes this project transformational is the multiple ripple effects of this economic investment across our entire state. Wisconsinites will make high-tech electronic products we use every day in Wiscconn Valley turning Wisconsin’s “Brain Drain” into a Wisconsin “Brain Gain.”
