Washington, DC—Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the following statement today regarding legislation to help the auto industry:
“Senate Democrats are committed to doing all we can to help the auto industry. Next week, during the lame-duck session of Congress, we are determined to pass legislation that will save the jobs of millions of workers whose livelihoods are on the line. They deserve no less.
“But until next year, we still have the slimmest of majorities in Senate; this will only get done if President Bush and Senate Republicans work with us in a bipartisan fashion, and I am confident they will do what is right for our economy.”
