A Senate subcommittee hearing was held on General Motors' and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s handling of ignition switch complaints in GM cars that had resulted in over a dozen deaths and the delay in recalling over two million vehicles. GM chief executive officer Mary Barra said that the cars could be driven safely if the ignition key was used alone but owners could get a loaner vehicle while waiting for repairs. She said that no decisions had been made about compensating victims but GM had hired Kenneth Feinberg to assess the situation. NHTSA acting administrator David Friedman testified that the agency was conducting an investigation to determine what went wrong with safety procedures and whether GM failed to relay critical information on the defect to the agency in a timely manner. close
