Wisconsin’s economic development panel has given the green light to a $3 billion incentives package for electronics company Foxconn. The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) voted 8-2 Wednesday to approve state subsidies for the Taiwanese manufacturer, which plans to build a manufacturing plant in Racine County. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Jason Stein reveals specifics of the deal, which became public after the vote.

How do you see the Foxconn agreement affecting future agreements in Wisconsin? Will other manufacturers expect incentives, or is Foxconn a one-off? Email, post on the Ideas Network Facebook page, or tweet us @wprmornings.
