Windows 8 -- Local Admins via "Group Policy" ?

My new machine image has "Domain Admins" as
"Local Admins", but then I manually do the below
  1. login to client's machine
  2. open Computer Management
  3. expand Local Users and Groups, then Groups
  4. double click "Administrators"
  5. add "Local Admin Techs" GROUP
  6. save

How can I change my Domain Controller's
"Group Policy/etc" so I don't have to
manually do above step #5 ?

Here is my method of doing it:

Your users will also be an admin just while they are logged in - so you don't have to worry about something using their permissions on remote machines.

The issue with restricted groups GPO is that if you change the group membership by adding a different user on a PC, the GPO will overwrite the changes.  Something to consider.
