Foxconn Officials Attend Barbeque With Governor, Fitzgerald

7/14/17 – Wisconsin officials have been talking with Foxconn, the Taiwanese company that’s considering a new technology plant in the state. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says the firm and its founder Terry Gou have been meeting with numerous leaders. The possible sites for the proposed plant include the Racine area, space in central Wisconsin, and smaller parcels in Dane County. State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald confirmed to the Journal Sentinel that he attended a barbeque with Governor Scott Walker and Foxconn leaders Tuesday night at the Executive Mansion. The Juneau Republican says lawmakers might need to pass a bill to help the state with enough incentives to compete for a plant that could have up to ten-thousand employees.
