LANSING - Governor Jennifer M. Granholm today issued the following statement on Chrysler:

"I'm pleased that the president has given us certainty that Chrysler will survive and thrive.  The next two months will be challenging, but the future for Chrysler is now more certain than it has been in a long time, because we know that jobs will remain and new jobs are coming. Chrysler will succeed in a way that brings new technologies, new products and new customers, and that's good for Michigan and the nation.  I'm thankful for the huge sacrifices of Chrysler's employees who made this happen and thankful that the president is encouraging the nation to get out and buy American cars."
