GM to Feds: We Won't Need That Extra $2 Billion

This is a call we bet General Motors enjoyed making: GM has told the White House that $2 billion worth of government bailout money that the automaker had previously requested will now not be needed.

The struggling Detroit automaker said that it has made up the shortfall by cost-cutting and delayed capital spending.

However: "GM will remain in regular contact with the Presidential Task Force on the Auto Industry on the status of GM’s restructuring actions, its liquidity position, timing of future funding requests, and other relevant topics of mutual concern," the company said.

Pressure's on Chrysler now.
