Rep. Allen released the following statement regarding his support for the Foxconn legislation:
Risk is inherent in business, and much of the debate I heard revolved around the risk of investing $3 billion over the next 15 years. Wisconsin is in the midst of experiencing an unprecedented demographics shift. We are losing a significant portion of graduates to other states and nations.
This will likely have a transformational effect for Wisconsin from the introduction of new technology and advanced manufacturing processes. The true risk would be in failing to act on this opportunity.
