"A new government council will help workers tied to the auto industry transition to new manufacturing opportunities, including jobs in alternative energy, Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday.

"President Barack Obama was expected to sign an executive order Tuesday that establishes the White House Council on Automotive Communities and Workers. The council will be chaired by the president's economic adviser, Larry Summers, and his labor secretary, Hilda Solis.

"The executive director will be Obama's director of recovery for auto communities and workers, Ed Montgomery."

Edward Montgomery is in Obama's Auto Task Force as "official designee".
