MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements about Gov. Scott Walker’s 11th-hour election year call to give enormous tax breaks for Kimberly-Clark, which paid $1 worth in net state tax over the last four years available, according to records from the Wisconsin Department of Revenue.

“Working families shouldn’t have to pay for Scott Walker’s corporate handouts. Scott Walker wants to write another election-year check for corporate welfare instead of investing Wisconsin tax dollars into education, infrastructure and health care for the people of Wisconsin. Scott Walker showed what an amateur negotiator he is with the $4.5 billion Foxconn disaster and now every company is trying to get their handout before the career politician is gone.”
