Lawmaker: GM may pick small-car plant this week

DETROIT (AP) — A U.S. representative says General Motors Corp. could decide as early as this week where in the U.S. it will build a new line of small cars.

Rep. Gary Peters of Michigan presented letters to GM signed by 20,000 people supporting the factory in Orion Township near Pontiac as the site of the plant.

GM has said it will decide by the end of the month between existing factories in Spring Hill, Tenn.; Janesville, Wis.; and Orion Township.

Company spokeswoman Sherrie Childers Arb would say only that a team of GM officials is working on the site selection and the company plans to make a decision by June 30.
