Please support a legislative fix in HR 7016 that will finally bring justice to the accident victims left behind in the GM bailout

  • Remove the burden on the States of having to fund care for the many GM accident victims abandoned by the federal government in the GM bailout
  • Show your compassion for these accident victims, who were paid pennies on the dollar for the approximately $936 million that Old GM estimated would be owing to these victims at the time of the bailout. By comparison, the government agreed that once it took control of “New GM,” the $60 billion in claims due corporate vendors, senior executives, unions, pension plans, and retirees would be paid in full
  • Support a legislative fix in HR 7016 as was done to enable the 1998 settlement of the black farmers’ discrimination case against the USDA in Pigford v. Glickman
  • No special Congressional appropriation necessary because the Treasury’s “Judgment Fund” is available to fully fund the victims’ liquidated, Court-approved bankruptcy claims through a Court-approved settlement process
