Statement from John Bozzella, Global Automakers' President and CEO 

"John Dingell was a friend and mentor to several generations who worked in the auto industry.  He was particularly devoted to helping improve the lives of the workers in the auto plants and other factories who elected him, and to that end he mastered the art of the possible.  His leadership and skill in crafting landmark legislation produced major economic, social and environmental gains.  A great many Americans are better off today because of his efforts, and that will be his enduring legacy."
