The governor of the state of Wisconsin says that we should soon expect the state legislature to address the issues of gun control.
Governor Tony Evers went 1-on-1 with WTMJ’s John Mercure during WTMJ 2020 (listen above at 23:38 in the podcast player above). In their discussion, Evers spoke of what he says is expected to come.
“We will have a special session,” said the Governor.
“I’m convinced we will be making that announcement within a week, maybe two weeks.”

He also discussed numerous other issues, including the continually changing Foxconn development which Evers says will not be the one which was promised involving 13,000 jobs.
“I want Foxconn to succeed. I also want the whole process to be transparent and accountable. It’s clear the 10G plant is not going to be built. It’s clear that a 6G is going to be built. From my vantage point…if we look to three years out, we kind of know what’s going to happen,” he said.
“We need to have clarity and continued accountability around this issue.”
Governor Evers spoke about how a major issue for people connected to Foxconn involves the initially-promised jobs that are predicted to no longer come.
“It’s more about ‘I thought there was going to be a whole bunch of manufacturing jobs,’ ” he said.
“That’s a reasonable thing people would ask about. We just have to make sure we are clear. We know right now what’s going to happen for the next three years.”
The Democratic Governor also addressed the plans Republicans have to build in particular tax cuts to distribute the latest surplus of tax revenue the state took in.
“This is a tax cut based on a one-time additional money which may not be there in a future,” said the Governor..
“Having it in the rainy day fund is a much better solution for us.”
