Statement from JFC Co-Chairs on Foxconn Hearing
  Madison – On Friday, State Senator Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) and State Representative John Nygren (R-Marinette), the Co-Chairs of the budget-writing Joint Finance Committee, released the following statement regarding a scheduled public hearing on the Foxconn bill at SC Johnson iMET Center in Sturtevant.
“Foxconn has the potential to be a game-changer for our state.  The reforms we have passed helped put our state in position for Foxconn to be a possibility.  Foxconn is expected to make a $10 billion investment and bring as many as 13,000 direct family-supporting careers and 22,000 indirect jobs to their area.  Hearing directly from the people of the Racine and Kenosha area is crucial to the project and the Foxconn legislation.  We look forward to the hearing.”
