A local state senator wants to make sure Spanish train maker Talgo feels welcome.

Representative Judy Robson of Beloit is a member of the Joint Finance Committee which plans to consider encouraging the manufacturer to set up shop in Wisconsin. A meeting of the committee, to consider incentives, is set for Tuesday. Robson says Janesville has both the workforce and facilities the train maker could use.

Milwaukee is also pursuing Talgo.
