Washington • General Motors CEO Mary Barra will be back in front of Congress next week to be questioned further about how GM allowed a deadly defect in an ignition switch to go undisclosed for more than a decade.
Barra will appear on June 18 before the House Energy and Commerce Committee's oversight subcommittee, the panel announced Wednesday.
Also testifying will be former U.S. Attorney Anton Valukas, who last week issued a report on GM's delayed recall of 2.6 million small cars equipped with the switches.
Valukas's report blamed the delay on a dysfunctional corporate structure and misconduct or poor decisions by some employees. The ignition switches have been linked to more than 50 crashes and at least 13 deaths.
