A Colorado businessman says South Bend has moved up on his list of possible factory sites now that the right-to-work bill has passed.
This is an update to a story we brought you last week about the new Studebaker Motor company, a start-up automaker in Colorado.
Ric W. Reed is the president of the company. he says passing the new legislation make South Bend more desirable.
"I don't need a labor union babysitting me, telling me what to do and not do."
Reed is in the process of getting funding and meeting with investors in hopes of getting Studebaker back on the road, and possibly starting production back in South Bend.
The Studebaker Motor Company website highlights Reed's vision to bring back Studebaker's unique designs and concepts to the automotive industry. He says it's not only South Bend's historic connection to Studebaker, but the area's infrastructure, location and need for jobs that interests him.
