Wisconsin Senate Leader Changes Tone On Foxconn Package

Wisconsin senate might reject Trump-backed Foxconn deal as concerns escalate, report says

Foxconn Technology Group wants to build a 20 million-square-foot LCD panel manufacturing campus - its first in the USA - in Racine or Kenosha counties and has promised to hire 13,000 workers.

Still, Walker said this week he believes it's a good deal that will ultimately get approved.

Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke, a Republican, says the Assembly's jobs committee expects to take up the bill early next week with a floor session planned for August 17.

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald has said over the last few days that he doesn't know if he has the votes to pass the bill, that it doesn't spell out when Foxconn will add the jobs and that he thinks the Legislature should focus on passing a state budget, which is overdue.

Work on the state budget has been at a standstill while Republicans grapple with a almost $1 billion shortfall in the state's transportation fund.

As he fishes, Martinez says North Korea remains at the back of his mind, despite his best efforts not to think about it. However, as customers sip on their coffee and grab lunch, Kim Jong Un's threat is what many are talking about.

It also exempts the plant from a number of environmental regulations, lifting the requirement for environmental-impact statements on construction and operations and making it easier to fill wetlands around the plant site.

"Nobody wants to fumble the ball here", Fitzgerald said on the radio show. One of them is based on the plant locating in Racine County's Mt.

Changes to the bill could include the annexation of the town of Yorkville, which is in Racine County, through a referendum process, Neylon said, signaling that Foxconn could be close to choosing that area for the proposed campus.

Wisconsin's top environmental official says a Foxconn plant in the state would be a "gift" and her agency can balance the environment with job creation.

Neylon said more changes could be submitted before his committee votes on the bill, which they are scheduled to do on Tuesday. The Foxconn plant could also potentially create 22,000 indirect positions within Wisconsin.

Swine flu claims two more lives in Odisha; toll reaches 6
Only the high-risk patients need to take the medical test in cases of swine flu, he said. Ahemdabad alone has reported 28 cases and two deaths in the last 24 hours, and counting.

The Wisconsin state senate does not yet have enough votes to sign off on a huge Chinese investment that has been backed by President Donald Trump, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The Senate introduced its version of the bill Thursday afternoon. "That's why it takes a little longer than a typical job out there or a typical project out there", he said.

"We're not going to do that in the state Senate", he told Bader.

Fitzgerald accused Vos of drafting amendments to the plan without consulting the Senate, further complicating matters.

He told host Mark Belling that he asked Fitzgerald repeatedly to participate in a joint committee hearing on the bill, but Fitzgerald refused, prompting Vos to "go it alone". The company has said the facility could eventually employ up to 13,000 people.
