“I’m thrilled to see that GM is once again willing to make important investments in Michigan workers. By pulling ahead in the electric vehicle space, we’re only going to attract more and more companies in the long run. With the addition of newly-passed funds to attract businesses here to Michigan, we’re setting the state up to be the leader in electric vehicle innovation and for decades of success. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store for western Wayne County thanks to these new funds.”
