Madison…Speaker Robin Vos released the following statement on the amended agreement between Foxconn and the State of Wisconsin.
“I am happy that Wisconsin and Foxconn were able to come to an updated agreement and glad the company continues to grow in Mount Pleasant. Foxconn is already the largest property taxpayer in Racine County. I have toured their campus and facilities and I’m excited about the incredible things they are working on.
“Despite all of the liberal criticism when the initial agreement was passed, this amendment actually gives the company even more financial incentives than the original did.
“Hopefully we can now put the politics surrounding the development behind us and focus on the partnership that continues to benefit all of Wisconsin.”
