Bill Description

Foxconn is proposing to develop over a 1,000 acres of land in what could be one of the largest projects in the state. SS AB 1 would allow for the creation of an Electronics and Information Technology Manufacturing Zone for this development. The bill would eliminate the requirement that Foxconn develop a state Environmental Impact Statement which would allow on the public to understand the full public health and environmental implications of this project. Additionally, the bill eliminates state environmental protections for isolated wetlands, navigable streams, and lakebeds within this zone.

Current Status

August 2017 Special Session AB 1 was signed into law by Governor Walker on September 19, 2017.
