The announced expansion of the Nissan plant in Canton before it even opened, came as no surprise to Senator Trent Lott.

He discussed the expansion on Thursday in a news conference with Mississippi media.

"We knew it was in the offing," said Lott. "In fact the truth of the matter is we knew that this was a likely prospect even during the discussion on Hyundai and that was one reason why I was concerned we pursue the Hyundai plant in a way that would also allow us to continue to be competitive for phase two at Nissan."

A special session of the Mississippi Legislature dealing with additional financing of up to $75 million for Nissan begins June 21.
