Good luck, worth a try. GM idled the Oklahoma City SUV plant in February. The state of Oklahoma offered much more than $15 million, to retool the 26 year old facility. Five years ago GM invested $700 million in the plant to build trucks. Unfortunately GM also built the same SUV in Moraine, Ohio. GM only needed one plant to build midsize SUV's. Ohio is lucky, they have several auto factories, Oklahoma only had one.
