Rep. Allen Votes Yes on Foxconn
Demographics and risk demand support

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.
