Kimberly-Clark wants incentives vote by month’s end

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Senate majority leader says an incentives package would save one of two Kimberly-Clark plants in the Fox Valley that the company has planned to close.

And, Kimberly-Clark wants a legislative vote on those incentives by the end of the month.

Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald say Kimberly-Clark would close its Neenah nonwoven plant that employs about 110 people. But the incentives could save the plant in Fox Crossing that employs about 500.

The Journal Sentinel reports Kimberly-Clark spokeswoman Brook Smith says the company wants a vote on incentives by Sept. 30.

Fitzgerald says he doesn’t know if legislative leaders could muster enough votes for an incentives package which would cost tens of millions of dollars.
