Gov. Nixon delivers optimistic message for Missouri auto-industry

Gov. Jay Nixon announced at his State of the State Address Jan. 19 at the Capitol he wants to keep building automobiles as part of his goal to keep making products in Missouri.

“You know, it sure feels nice to be at the wheel when the automobile industry turned the corner,” Nixon said.

Nixon also said last summer he called the General Assembly into a special session to discuss strengthening the automotive industry in Missouri. He wants companies to come to the Show Me state and stay in the Show Me state.

“We fought for every man and woman whose job was on the line,” Nixon said. “And I’m proud to say that working together, we won that fight.”
