Senator Tom Tiffany’s Statement on Governor Evers Shutting the Door to Business Growth
"Businesses, not just in Wisconsin, but all across the country are watching to see if Wisconsin is still open for business."
“Governor Evers’ statement that he does not intend to honor the contract with Foxconn causes me great concern. My district is about as far away from Foxconn as it gets, yet I have several successful businesses throughout the 12th Senate District that have negotiated similar contracts. Is Governor Evers setting a precedent that jeopardizes all contracts and loans previously negotiated by the state? Are the businesses in my district that have entered into contracts with the state, in jeopardy as a result of this? Should companies like Kimberly Clark be concerned?
For the past eight years, Wisconsin was open for business, and Legislative Republicans worked to foster a climate where companies wanted to expand and bring jobs here. Businesses, not just in Wisconsin, but all across the country are watching to see if Wisconsin is still open for business.”
