Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to attend 2011 Detroit auto show

Article by Christian A., on January 9, 2011

Emphasizing just how far the U.S. auto market has come since last year, outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will be attending the upcoming North American International Auto Show to tout the recovery of the industry. In a statement last Tuesday, Pelosi said, "A strong American manufacturing base is essential to our national security and competitiveness.”

She also said that Detroit is the focus of efforts to reinforce the economy, further a green economy, and to create future jobs.

In a visit to the auto show in January 2010, Pelosi promised that she will go back to Detroit. She said that she will highlight Democrats' decision to rescue General Motors Co. and Chrysler Group LLC, despite the opposition of most Republicans.

Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, is the successor of Pelosi as Speaker. Republicans won control of the House in November. In last year’s show in Detroit, Pelosi, two Cabinet secretaries and more than a dozen lawmakers, including House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., attended.

Back then, the future of General Motors and Chrysler was not so certain. At that time, Pelosi had meetings with the CEOs of GM, Ford and Chrysler and also took the opportunity to visit the car displays of the three carmakers. [via freep]
