NEWPORT, Del. (AP) -- The former GM plant in the Newport area could draw $14 million in federal funds for a cleanup effort before Fisker Automotive moves in.
It is part of an $800 million fund proposed for environmental remediation of closed car plants. Though it is not clear how the money will be spent in Delaware.
Fisker, which bought the former GM plant last fall, is scheduled to settle in the next few weeks, and has committed to spending $175 million over three years to retool the facility to build plug-in hybrid electric cars.
