PRESIDENT OF AMERICAN AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURERS ASSOCIATION COMMENTS ON PRESIDENT CLINTON STATEMENT

 WASHINGTON, March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The following is a statement by Thomas Hanna, American Automobile Manufacturers Association, commenting on President Clinton's statement today, that his position on reclassifying Multi-Purpose Vehicles (MPVs) as trucks rather than cars has not changed since the campaign.
 The President commented that he "was astonished that the Bush Administration overruled its own customs office and gave a $300 million freebie to the Japanese for no apparent reason." The President continued, "And we got nothing, and I emphasize nothing, in return."
 "Over the months, the President has been consistent in his comments on this matter. We are encouraged and look forward to action being taken," Hanna said.
 The American Automobile Manufacturers Association is the trade association for domestic car and light truck manufacturers, which produced 81 percent of all U.S.-built motor vehicles.
