WASHINGTON (AP) — First came the bailout. Now comes the payback.

The Treasury Department is ordering seven big companies that haven’t paid back last year’s government bailouts to halve their top executives’ average compensation.

The cuts apply to the 25 highest-paid executives at the companies, with salaries being slashed up to 90 percent, according to a person familiar with the matter. The companies are: Bank of America Corp., American International Group Inc., Citigroup Inc., General Motors, GMAC, Chrysler and Chrysler Financial.
