GM, safety agency face Congress

By Associated Press | Mar 31, 2014

DETROIT — Congress will press General Motors CEO Mary Barra and federal regulators about their handling of a safety defect in the Chevrolet Cobalt and other small cars during hearings this week.

The hearings will be before a House subcommittee Tuesday and a Senate subcommittee Wednesday.

GM has recalled 2.6 million cars for a faulty ignition switch, which it links to 13 deaths.

Congress wants to know if it needs to strengthen a 2000 law intended to improve communication between automakers and the government.
