Michigan Republicans May Fill Void as GM, Ford Allies

General Motors Co., Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler Group LLC may get relief from regulations such as higher fuel-economy standards as Michigan Republicans seek posts leading two U.S. House committees.

Representative Fred Upton of Kalamazoo is among candidates to become chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which oversees legislation on vehicle-safety and emissions, and Republican David Camp from Midland is in line to head the House Ways and Means Committee, which sets policy on tax issues.
