With the election over and Scott Walker out as governor next year questions are being raised over whether the Senate will still take up plans to give incentives to Kimberly-Clark.
The company is set to close its Neenah Nonwovens plant but is putting off a decision on its Cold Spring facility in Fox Crossing to give the state more time to pass tax incentives worth $100 million.
The two plants combined employ about 600 people.
Neenah Mayor Dean Kaufert says some could say this should be left for the new governor but there’s been commitments made to the company.
In early October Sen. Roger Roth, the plan’s sponsor, said a special session would be held the Monday after the election.
Republicans acknowledge the plan needs bipartisan support.
