Rep. Gary Glenn tours Advanced Battery Concepts plant

Rep. Glenn toured the Advanced Battery Concepts plant just south of Clare Thursday afternoon. An automotive industry group recently labeled ABC's working bipolar design -- a car battery 12 pounds lighter those now in use, but with more starting power -- the most "disruptive" new battery technology in the country.
