MADISON – Governor-elect Tony Evers issued the following statement today on the Kimberly-Clark announcement.

“The Republicans’ lame-duck session overriding the will of the people would affect the governor’s ability to lead on economic development through proposals like the one announced for Kimberly-Clark today. Unfortunately, Republicans played politics with this issue for months, leaving Kimberly-Clark workers and their families in the dark and uncertain about their futures.

I’ve said all along that we need a long-term, industry-wide solution to the challenges facing the paper industry – the governor of our state shouldn’t be hamstrung when it comes to economic development, and that’s why I continue to call on Governor Scott Walker to veto the lame-duck legislation.”
