Wednesday, though, money was flowing the other way. The company announced that it's sinking a lot of cash into its Fairfax plant in Kansas City, Kan. It also trumped the fact that it has repaid a massive federal government loan, way early. Those two announcements in Kansas City led to some rare, bipartisan praise for the auto industry relief plan.</p> Wed, 21 Apr 2010 14:18:40 +0000 Frank Morris 6550 at http://kcur.org GM Spends Big In KCK And Pays Off Government Loan
