Janesville could get millions in federal dollars to cleanup GM plant site


WASHINGTON (WKOW) --  The Federal government may pick up the tab for the clean-up of 90 former General Motors plants, including the one in Janesville.

The Obama Administration is proposing the creation of a trust fund of more than $800 million.

In Youngstown, Ohio Tuesday, President Barack Obama called the trust a "landmark agreement to help dozens of communities like Youngstown revitalize and redevelop old, shuttered GM facilities, preparing them for new industries, new jobs and new opportunity."

Ed Montgomery, who leads the White House Council on Automotive Communities and Workers,  said the fund represents the largest environmental and economic development effort for former manufacturing sites.

The money would be used to help raze or rehabilitate vacant manufacturing facilities and offices left barren by GM's government-led bankruptcy last year.  $536 million would go toward the cleanup of properties and about $300 million to help states and communities pay for property taxes, demolition costs, plant security and other expenses.  The funding comes from $1.2 billion provided by the Treasury Department to wind down the "bad" assets of GM set aside in the company's bankruptcy.

The administration plans to work with states to finalize the plan and will present the framework of the cleanup to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York for approval.

General Motors received $50 billion in government aid to get through its bankruptcy last year. GM has repaid $6.7 billion that the government considered loans, with the remaining $43.3 billion converted to a 61 percent stake in the automaker.

GM said Monday that its net income rose to $865 million in the first quarter.

The 90 sites are in 14 states.  More than half of them are in Michigan.  The full list is below.
