Large Family Deals With Auto Industry Uncertainty One Day At A Time
Lawson, Missouri – Autoworkers were relieved Friday when President Bush approved a 14.3 billion dollar loan to the Big 3 automakers.

Supporters, including Missouri Republican Senator Kit Bond, promised angry fellow-Republicans that autoworkers would be making further concessions to offset the cost of the loan to taxpayers.
