GM chief Mary Barra back on Capitol Hill
General Motors CEO Mary Barra was back on Capitol Hill today.
She was there to offer more testimony on the growing ignition switch recall problem which has been linked to 13 deaths and the recall of some six million GM vehicles.
Mary Barra was not alone. She came with independent investigator Anton Valukas and his 300-page report.
Detroit News Washington Bureau Chief David Shepardson says Valukas was able to answer questions about the report while Barra could focus on what GM was going to do in the future.
“Overall, the questioning was a lot gentler than last time, because the committees didn’t express frustration with Mary that she was not able to answer so many different questions,” Shepardson said.
“There are really no questions they could answer with the exception of the why.”
