General Motors will invest $1.3-billion in Michigan plants, Detroit Free Press reports.

The investment will create about 1,000 jobs, the newspaper said.

The expansion plans include $600 million for a paint shop at the Flint truck assembly plant; $493 million for a new 10-speed transmission at the Romulus Powertrain plant; and $121 million at the Detroit-Hamtramck plant where workers assemble the Chevrolet Malibu, Impala and Volt.
