NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee officials have submitted their bid to General Motors to try to persuade the company to choose its Spring Hill plant over two other finalists for the production of a new small car.

A spokesman for Gov. Phil Bredesen confirmed the proposal has been made, but declined to give any details.

Bredesen had previously made critical remarks about the bankrupt automaker's demands for upfront payments from states in return for selecting among plants that are scheduled to go on standby later this year or are already closed.

GM has said it is moving production of the new subcompact car from Asia to either Spring Hill, Janesville, Wis., or Orion Township, Mich.
