CHRYSLER VICE CHAIRMAN EATON TO MEET WITH TWO U.S. CONGRESS MEMBERS TO DISCUSS DEVELOPMENT OF ALTERNATIVE FUEL VEHICLE MARKET

 CHRYSLER VICE CHAIRMAN EATON TO MEET WITH TWO U.S. CONGRESS MEMBERS
 TO DISCUSS DEVELOPMENT OF ALTERNATIVE FUEL VEHICLE MARKET
 The two members of the U.S. Congress most responsible for alternative fuel tax incentive legislation in the national energy strategy currently being debated in the U.S. House of Representatives will meet with Chrysler Vice Chairman Robert J. Eaton on Friday, May 29, to discuss the development of the alternative fuel vehicle market and drive a variety of Chrysler alternative fuel production and development vehicles. Media are invited to participate in all activities.
 Sen. Jay D. Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) introduced S. 1178 in May 1991 to provide a $2,000 tax incentive to both fleet and retail purchasers of alternative fuel passenger cars and light duty trucks. Higher tax incentives for larger vehicles and refueling equipment costs are also part of the proposed Rockefeller legislation.
 This month, Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.) added S. 1178 to the House Energy Bill H.R. 776. That bill is currently being debated on the House floor and is expected to pass this week. When the bill passes, there will be a conference between the House and Senate to resolve any differences in their respective bills before it is passed along for signing by President Bush.
 Rockefeller and Levin will join Eaton and Chrysler Vice President of Product Strategy and Regulatory Affairs Ronald R. Boltz in a tour of the Chrysler Technology Center (CTC) from 8:15-9:15 a.m., beginning in the front lobby.
 Following the tour, Rockefeller and Levin will ride and drive in a variety of Chrysler alternative fuel vehicles:
 -- TEVan electric minivan;
 -- Flexible Fuel (85 percent methanol/15 percent gasoline) Dodge Intrepid (LH) sedan prototype;
 -- FFV Dodge Spirit scheduled for production in July 1992;
 -- Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Dodge B-250 Wagon (March 1992);
 -- CNG Dodge Grand Caravan prototype.
 The ride and drive is scheduled from 9:15-10:15 a.m. and will begin immediately outside of the CTC lobby.
 Following the ride and drive, Rockefeller, Levin, Eaton and Boltz will hold a roundtable discussion on alternative fuel vehicle markets, infrastructure and pending legislation. The roundtable will be held in the CTC Lecture Hall 2B and will run from 10:15-11:15 a.m.
 A continental breakfast will be served in the CTC Lobby beginning at 7:45 a.m. Chrysler representatives will be on hand throughout the morning to direct media not able to attend the early morning tour.
