The WEDC: As Transparent as Trump with his Tax Return
"The WEDC has been the kid left in the candy store after it closed."
Madison – Today, the Assembly Audit Committee heard testimony from members of the WEDC concerning the audit report which again highlighted that the WEDC has not properly verified job creation numbers as statutorily required and addressed questions concerning the Foxconn contract. Rep. Anderson released the following statement regarding their repeated lack of oversight:
“The WEDC has been as transparent with their contracts as President Trump with his tax returns. The public will not be able to see the details of the Foxconn contract until after the deal has been signed. This is a $3 Billion contract. This is not your iTunes terms of service agreement. The WEDC has been the kid left in the candy store after it closed. We cannot condone the secrecy or irresponsibility with our tax dollars. We must hold Governor Walker and his slush fund accountable.”
