CEO Barra calls GM's actions on deadly defect 'unacceptable'

GM Chief Executive Officer Barra testifies during a House Energy and Commerce hearing on Capitol Hill in WashingtonAfter taking an oath at a House of Representatives panel, Barra kicked off the contentious hearing by declaring, “I am deeply sorry” for the company’s failure to respond quickly to the safety problem and subsequent deaths. The questioning became contentious at times but it did not appear to rattle the GM chief executive, who rose to her current job in January. Still, during a nearly three-hour appearance on Capitol Hill, Barra testified again and again that GM had taken steps to prevent future safety problems from occurring. She labored to remind lawmakers that the so-called “new GM” she heads was nothing like the “old GM” that failed to deal with faulty ignition switches for more than a decade.
