[Sturtevant, Wisc...] Gov. Scott Walker signed the "Wisconn Valley Special Session Bill" at Gateway Tech in Sturtevant on Monday.

This incentives package was one of the requirements of the Memorandum of Understanding with Foxconn, which was signed in July. Now, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation will negotiate and finalize a contract between Foxconn and the state.

Foxconn will be building its $10 billion manufacturing facility in Mount Pleasant, according to Rep. Peter Barca (D-Kenosha). It is expected to be operational in 2020.
