Ypsi Twp: General Motors

The New York Times reports on how local governments – some that gave tax abatements and other incentives to General Motors over the years – have been affected by GM plant closings. The article features the impact on Ypsilanti Township, which is suing the automaker, and quotes attorney Doug Winters, who is representing the township: “We’re their own private ATM. When they need money, they come begging, but when they don’t want oversight, they say ‘get out of the way.’” [Source]
