DETROIT (AP) -- The new CEO for General Motors is headed to Capitol Hill today to answer questions about the defect in some of the automaker's small cars that's linked to 13 deaths.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration chief David Friedman also is expected to testify that GM had information connecting defective ignition switches to the non-deployment of air bags as early as 2001, but didn't share it until last month.
House subcommittee members will want to know why neither GM nor the safety agency moved to recall millions of cars with the defective switches.
