In a memo released on Sunday by the House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee, documents provided by GM and a federal regulator provided “unsettling” information, according to Republican Representative Tim Murphy, who leads a subcommittee of the panel. The memo was released ahead of Tuesday’s testimony from GM Chief Executive Mary Barra, who will appear at the committee’s first public hearing on the recalls. She is likely to be asked why it took GM so long to identify and address the ignition switch problem.
