 FORD, CHRYSLER, GENERAL MOTORS
 FORM JOINT SUPPLIER GOVERNMENTAL ACTION COUNCIL
 DETROIT, Nov. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F), Chrysler Corporation (NYSE: C), and General Motors Corporation (NYSE: GM) today announced that they have formed a Joint Automotive Supplier Governmental Action Council to work with their suppliers on auto-related governmental issues of mutual concern.
 Ford Chairman Harold A. Poling will serve as the auto company co-chairman of the Council and Dana Corporation (NYSE: DCN) Chairman Southwood Morcott has been named the supplier co-chairman of the group. Under the guidelines of the Council, both co-chair positions will rotate every two years, in alternating years. The OEM co-chair will rotate among the auto company chief executive officers.
 "To a great extent, our destiny is being shaped in the legislative arena, and will be even more so in the future," according to Poling.
 "Our objective for this Council is to establish a link with Congress that will help our senators and representatives better understand both the complexities of our business and the implications of proposed legislation on our industry."
 Thirty-one suppliers, representing both small and large companies with national and international locations, have been selected to join the Council for a one-year term.
 "If there ever were a mandate for redefining the relationship between government and business, the tough period we're facing provides it," said Morcott. "The economic, regulatory, and competitive challenges we face have made it clear that ensuring industry's vitality is both a public and private sector task."
 The Council will meet twice a year to discuss legislative issues of mutual concern and develop joint efforts to keep federal, state and local officials informed so that the industry's positions are considered when voting on legislation.
 Other auto company Council members will include three vice presidents representing the Purchasing and Materials staffs and three vice presidents representing the Governmental Affairs staffs.
