GM expected to announce major investment in Bowling Green plant

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - A General Motors executive has plans
to visit the company's assembly plant in south-central Kentucky.
A statement from the company says GM North America President
Mark Reuss is scheduled to arrive Wednesday at the Bowling Green
plant where Corvettes are assembled.
The Daily News in Bowling Green reports GM is expected to
announce a major investment in the plant.
Last month, the state approved $7.5 million in tax incentives
for the company if it moves forward with an expansion at the plant.
Economic Development Cabinet Secretary Larry Hayes, who was
among a group from Kentucky to visit GM headquarters in Detroit
last week, says he expects a formal announcement Wednesday and
hopes to be there for it.
Gov. Steve Beshear is also expected to attend.
