LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - General Motors is now putting Texas car dealerships and their employees at risk. That's according to Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott and I agree 100%.

This is way too much government involvement. Oh, did I mention that gm is now majority owned by the government? Consider this, if GM and the federal government get their way, our family owned dealerships, their employees and you the consumer will be the loser.
If you agree, then write your congressman and state elected officials. Their information is listed below. Tell them to leave Texas alone and let free enterprise continue to work on the South Plains.
