“GM’s newly announced projects are good for the whole state of Michigan. Our state will see more money spent here in the short term to build, expand and improve facilities to increase production and hire more workers. This investment will produce results long into the future.
“Make no mistake: Michigan is the automotive state, and we must commit to lead the country in vehicle manufacturing. The success of the automobile industry helps drive our entire state’s economic success. Investment by GM is good news for the people of Michigan, and I proudly supported a plan that will lend a hand in this endeavor.”
