Wisconsin Lawmakers to Convene Special Session
Wisconsin lawmakers are scheduled to convene this morning specifically to consider and act upon legislation to bring Foxconn, the world’s largest electronics manufacturing services provider, to the state.
Though the legislature is still in regular session, Gov. Walker called a special legislative session to take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Wisconsin to lead the nation in high-tech manufacturing.
The legislation to be considered could bring 13,000 direct Foxconn jobs, 10,000 direct construction jobs, and 22,000 additional project-related jobs to the state.
