Kimberly-Clark wants fast action on Wisconsin bill to save threatened plant [From the web]

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, September 13, 2018-

Gov. Scott Walker said Wednesday that it would be easier to reconvene the state Senate after the November election to vote on an incentive package that might keep Kimberly-Clark from shutting down one of two Wisconsin plants, but the Kleenex tissue-maker said it wants action by the end of this month.

Walker told The Associated Press that he's working hard to reach a deal that could get the necessary Senate votes to pass such a package, but it would need bipartisan support. Republicans have a narrow 18-15 majority, but they don't have enough support for an incentive package that might save one of the company's two plants in the Fox Valley.
