Last chance for GM's Janesville plant?

U.S. Sens. Herb Kohl and Russ Feingold and Reps. Tammy Baldwin and Paul Ryan will meet with executives from General Motors Wednesday, to discuss the automaker's recently-closed plant in Janesville.

Troy Clarke, head of GM’s North American Division, and Tim Lee, vice president of manufacturing, will attend the meeting, in Kohl's office at 1:15 p.m. Last week it was announced that the Janesville plant was one of three GM facilities under consideration for retooling to make small cars.

The meeting will give members of Wisconsin’s Congressional delegation an opportunity to make the case for GM’s Janesville plant and its workers. The 90-year-old truck assembly plant, with 1,300 workers, shut down in April.
