Senator Craig Statement on Kimberly–Clark Legislation
"If brought to a vote, I would not support the proposed Kimberly-Clark tax incentive legislation."
Madison, WI — Today, State Senator David Craig (R-Town of Vernon) released the following statement relating to the Kimberly-Clark tax incentive package (Assembly Bill 963):
“The Foxconn incentive package was an outlier in both scope and future opportunity for our state. A clear, bright line should be drawn between the extraordinary, statewide impacts of Foxconn and future economic development policy.
“If brought to a vote, I would not support the proposed Kimberly-Clark tax incentive legislation. I will continue to advocate for an economic development posture that lessens government intervention in the private sector. By stimulating economic growth through broad-based tax reforms, all Wisconsinites will enjoy the benefits of a reduced tax burden and more economic freedoms – keeping Wisconsin competitive with other states and globally.”
Senator Craig represents the 28th Senate District which includes parts of Waukesha, Milwaukee, Racine, and Walworth counties.
