MADISON, WI – As Gov. Walker continues to prioritize Foxconn over Wisconsin-based businesses, Senator Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:

“It’s clear Gov. Walker wants to shore up his political future, but I don’t agree with this rush to sell out Wisconsin families and jeopardize access to clean air, land and drinking water. Foxconn has a troubling record of environmental violations and workplace abuses. With billions of taxpayer dollars at stake, this rush to rubberstamp air pollution permits, water diversion requests and land condemnations is putting the health and safety of Wisconsin families at risk.”
