Madison—State Representative John Nygren (R-Marinette) released the following statement immediately following action by the Joint Committee on Finance regarding Foxconn:
“Today was a momentous day in Wisconsin as we voted to pass an amended Foxconn bill in the Joint Committee on Finance. The amendments brought forward by Senate Republicans make a good bill even better. Reforms that have been advocated for and put into action by the Governor and the GOP led legislature throughout the past few years have put us in a position to attract, welcome, and retain companies like Foxconn to our great state. I am confident that without our reforms, we would not be having these votes on Foxconn today.
“Foxconn is a once in a generation opportunity for our state, and this is an opportunity we should be proud of and excited about. It is important that we do our due diligence to craft the best deal possible for the taxpayers and I believe we have done that.”
