General Motors CEO to Testify Before House

General Motors CEO Mary Barra is set to testify next month before a House of Representatives panel looking into the delayed recall of 1.6 million cars with defective ignition switches that have been linked to a dozen deaths, the committee said Thursday. House Energy and Commerce Committee leaders also said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration acting Administrator David Friedman was invited to testify at the April 1 panel. Barra this week apologized for the at least 12 deaths stemming from 31 accidents caused by the faulty ignition switches. She admitted the auto giant took too long to tell drivers of its cars about the issue so they could take their autos in for repairs.
