Senator Kohl urges tough questions for auto execs at key meeting

MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin Senator Herb Kohl is urging tough questions be asked at a meeting today between top officials from General Motors and Chrysler and the Senate Commerce Committee.

Kohl sent a letter to the head of the committee.  It asked the committee to pin the executives down on their plan to close thousands of dealerships.

Kohl says he's disturbed by reports from his constituents that Chrysler has given dealers little or no help during the difficult closing process.  He says many were given just three weeks to close their doors.

Meanwhile, GM plans to close 2,100 dealerships nationwide following its bankruptcy declaration.  Kohl says he wants answers on how GM plans to treat those dealerships as they are forced to close their doors.
