MADISON -- Several protesters briefly disrupted the WEDC board Wednesday as it discussed whether or not to approve a $3 billion incentive plan for a Foxconn Technology Group plant in Wisconsin.
The protesters arrived about a half hour into the meeting. They criticized the WEDC for committing billions in taxpayer dollars without revealing the details of the contract to the public.
Sen. Tim Carpenter (D-Milwaukee) motioned that the vote be made in open session instead, but that motion was voted down.
