Major Job-Creating Auto Industry Investment Coming to Right to Work Indiana?

According to the AP, the Chrysler Group confirmed Monday it may expand its Indiana operations “with a factory south of Kokomo, which would create 850 jobs.” ¬†Indiana became the 23rd Right to Work state early this year.

The AP notes that the factory Chrysler is looking at near Kokomo has an interesting history:

This will be Tipton County’s third attempt to fill the massive building. After Getrag abandoned plans for the plant, Colorado-based solar panel maker Abound Solar received a $400 million federal loan guarantee in 2010 to launch operations in the facility. But the company filed for bankruptcy liquidation earlier this year, scuttling the plan.
