Davis Statement on Rivan Automotive's Discussions to Purchase Closed Mitsubishi Plant in Normal
U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) today released the following statement following the news that Rivan Automotive is in discussion to purchase the closed Mitsubishi Motors plant in Normal:
"This is great news for the Bloomington-Normal community," said Davis. "We have always known that this community is home to some of the most-talented, driven workers right here in Central Illinois and this is reflected by Rivian's desire to invest and create jobs here. It's also because of the diligent efforts led by the Bloomington-Normal Economic Development Council, Town of Normal and Mayor Koos, the McLean County Board, and the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity to recruit new employers to the area."
