Barra is scheduled to testify on June 18 before an oversight panel of the House of Representatives, a GM spokesman said Wednesday. It will be Barra’s first appearance before Congress since GM released last Thursday an internal investigation report on the car recall that began in February, just weeks after she took the company’s top job. Some employees in the company had detected the ignition-switch problem more than a decade earlier, according to GM.
