General Motors CEO Mary Barra will return to Capitol Hill on Wednesday for the next round of hearings on the company’s ignition switch recall.
Barra and Anton Valukas, the lead author of the Jenner & Block internal report into GM’s failure to recall 2.6 million Cobalts and other small cars for ignition switch defects for more than a decade, will testify before a subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee at 10 a.m. Wednesday, a spokeswoman said Wednesday. The scathing report from Valukas released Thursday laid the blame on a pattern of “incompetence and neglect” at GM.
A Senate Commerce Committee panel also may hold its hearing next week, though a committee spokeswoman declined to confirm the plan. The two committees held back-to-back hearings in early April.Read Article
