The American senate has fixed the 2nd April for hearing into ignition switch recall case towards General Motors. Due to that fact CEO of General Motors Mary Barra will have to stay additional day in Washington D.C while on April 1st she is about to testify in front of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. At both inquiries will also testify National Highway transportation Safety Administration in person of David Friedman.
The interrogation will be held by the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Insurance, which oversees NHTSA. „We need to find out who dropped ball and put millions of Americans at risk. We also need to make sure that General Motors and federal regulators are doing everything they can to prevent more tragedies like this now and in the future,” said Claire McCaskill (D-MO), the group’s chair, in a March 12 statement on her website.
Apart from Congressional hearing, GM is also facing further investigations from Justice Department, NHTSA and internal investigation.
