There's still hope for GM and Chrysler to bring some of their operations back to Wisconsin.
GM has announced that the Janesville Assembly Plant is one of three sites being considered to build a new line of small cars. Governor Jim Doyle says it's a promising sign, but he doesn't want to get anyone's hopes up. Doyle says there's still a long way to go and it will be a tough competition, even though he believes Janesville is the best place to be.
Also on Monday, a bankruptcy filing from Chrysler indicated an engine plant in Kenosha will not need to be sold, leaving open the possibility for Fiat to make an offer on the facility. Doyle says it's the only operation whose status has changed since the initial closing announcements last month.
Doyle says the state will continue fighting aggressively to bring work back to both facilities. He says the odds may not be great, but the door has "not been closed" on Janesville or Kenosha.
