Barra Starts Congressional Testimony Today

(Washington, DC) -- General Motors CEO Mary Barra will be in the hot seat this afternoon before a House panel investigating the recall of more than two-million vehicles. Laura Christian, who lost her daughter Amber Rose, says investigators are only looking at one side of the issue.
GM expanded the recall on Friday, and also said late last week it now links the ignition switch and airbag problems to 13 deaths. Barra will apologize today for safety defects GM didn't announce for more than a dozen years. In advance written testimony, Barra says GM is working to find out why the defect wasn't announced until this year, when the switches were known to be potential problems as far back as 2001.
