The bill signing was held at Gateway Technical College's iMET Center in Sturtevant. The Governor called it, "a truly transformational step for our state." 

The agreement would provide up to $2.85 billion over 15 years to the manufacturing giant to offset qualifying payroll costs as well as capital costs of constructing an up to $10 billion factory that could employ as many as 13,000 people. Company officials have said the Foxconn campus would occupy up to 20 million square feet, or the equivalent of 11 Lambeau Fields. Construction is estimated to employ as many as 10,000 workers.
