Officials hope GM to consider incentives package

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A spokesman for General Motors says the company doesn't want to give false hope that an incentives package might postpone the planned closing of the Oklahoma City assembly plant.

Stefan Weinmann, a spokesman for GM in Detroit, says the company carefully studied market conditions in deciding to close the Oklahoma City plant. Weinmann says the decision wasn’t based on anything the city or state didn't do.

Governor Henry unveiled the package Wednesday. The plant is scheduled to close next month.

The package includes $200-million in bonds to retool the plant to make a more economical vehicle. It also includes concessions by the United Auto Workers Local 1999, retraining through the state's Vo-Tech program and lower costs from suppliers of products used by GM.
