Congressman Paul Ryan Breaks Ground at Foxconn Development
First District Congressman and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) today released the following statement after breaking ground at the location of Foxconn’s 20 million-square-foot facility in Racine County.
"As we break ground today, we embark on a new era of manufacturing in the State of Wisconsin. This is a great day for the Badger state, and I want to thank Governor Walker for his help bringing this unprecedented project to Wisconsin, President Trump for his vision and leadership, and Chairman Gou for his commitment to Wisconsin.
“I’m thrilled that this project will not only create thousands of good, family-sustaining jobs, but ensure that Wisconsin is at the cutting-edge of this important industry. Today, we demonstrate to the rest of the world that Wisconsin will be a manufacturing powerhouse for generations to come, and I am excited to see the far-reaching economic impact Foxconn will have on the state and district I call home.”
