MADISON -- Following is a statement from Wisconsin Department of Administration Secretary-designee Joel Brennan in response to recent developments in the Foxconn project:

"The administration is in regular, weekly communication with senior leadership at Foxconn, however, we were surprised to learn about this development.

"While some of the information reported today has been previously reported publicly, other details about the continuing evolution of this project will require further review and evaluation by our team. Our team has been in contact with Foxconn since learning this news and will continue to monitor the project to ensure the company delivers on its promises to the people of  Wisconsin.

"The governor has always said that protecting Wisconsin taxpayers, the local communities that have already made significant investments in this project, and our environment are his chief concerns.

"In the coming weeks, the Evers Administration will continue to commit time, resources, and personnel to ensure that the interests of Wisconsin workers and taxpayers are protected and promoted by our approach to the Foxconn project."
