    Emanuel Says Auto Industry Essential to U.S. Economy

    Nov. 9 (Bloomberg) — Rahm Emanuel, President-elect Barack Obama’s chief of staff, called the auto industry an “essential” part of U.S. manufacturing, while stopping short of endorsing a proposal to use some of the $700 billion financial-rescue fund to aid automakers.

    “The auto industry is an essential part of our economy,” Emanuel said on ABC’s “This Week.” Lawmakers should speed up the availability of $25 billion in government loans for the development of fuel-efficient cars, he said.

    In addition, there are “other authorities” the administration can use immediately and Obama “has asked his economic team to look at different options of what it takes to help bridge the auto industry so they are a part of not only a revived economy, but part of an energy policy going forward.”
