SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah car dealers affected by the Chrysler bankruptcy want help from Utah's elected officials.

Ten Utah dealers were notified last month that their contracts would be canceled due to the company's bankruptcy restructuring.

A Utah law requires the dealerships be given 60 days notice and that the company buy back unsold cars, but Chrysler does not have to comply with that law due to bankruptcy protection.

The owners of those dealerships -- including Nephi state Rep. Patrick Painter -- are now asking the legislature and Utah's Congressional delegation to take up their cause and demand they be helped with unsold cars.
