Questions Arise Over Future of Kimberly-Clark Incentives Package Following Election


After the election wrapped up this week – questions began to rise over whether the state Senate will still take up legislation to provide a tax incentives package to Kimberly-Clark. The company said it would close it’s Neenah nonwovens facility – but delay a decision to close the Cold Spring plant in Fox Crossing to allow the state more time to pass the $100 million package. Those two plants employ a combined 600 people. 

An extraordinary session to address the topic is scheduled to begin next week. Republicans say the passage of the bill will require bi-partisan support. Local officials say a decision has to be made – and hope the state and outgoing governor will hold promises made to keep the company in the Fox Valley.
