Lawmakers Press General Motors on Report's Findings

Posted: Updated:
The head of General Motors has been facing more tough questioning from Congress about the automaker's handling of a deadly safety issue.
 
Members of a House subcommittee asked CEO Mary Barra why it took GM more than 10 years to recall cars with defective ignition switches.
 
GM blames the switches for at least 13 deaths, but one lawmaker said she thinks there could be up to 100 deaths associated with the problem.
 
Republican Rep. Fred Upton says this week's recall of another 3.4 million cars with faulty ignitions shows the problem didn't end with the first recall.
 
Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., says senior executives at GM, including Barra, should have acted sooner to change the company's culture.  (AP)
