Wis. congressional members, GM execs to meet

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Four members of Wisconsin's congressional delegation plan to meet with General Motors executives today to discuss the possibility of reopening GM's Janesville plant.

US Senators Herb Kohl and Russ Feingold and US Representatives Tammy Baldwin and Paul Ryan will meet with the executives this afternoon.

Representing GM will be Troy Clarke, who's the head of its North American division, and Tim Lee, its vice president of manufacturing.

GM said last week it's planning a new subcompact vehicle to compete with foreign models, and pledged to build it in the US. The Janesville plant is one of three facilities on the automaker's short list of options.
