GM CEO Barra to testify in House about faulty ignitions

GM (GM) CEO Mary Barra is set to testify on April 1 at hearings in the House into why it took the company over a decade to recall cars with faulty car ignition switches.

The House Energy & Commerce Committee, which is holding the hearings, has also invited David Friedman, the acting Administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Panel Chairman Fred Upton believes that Barra's and Friedman's testimonies "will be essential to getting answers about what went wrong." That's despite the problem stemming from well before either was in their respective jobs.

The session is likely to be the first in a series of Congressional hearings, with the Senate also expected to listen to testimony.
