DeGette said Monday that she also wants more details about any compensation plans from GM. The automaker has hired attorney Kenneth Feinberg to implement a compensation strategy.
Feinberg has handled compensation plans for the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and donations to victims of the 2012 movie-theater shooting in suburban Denver.
DeGette said lawmakers also want to figure out how to communicate better with drivers who may have faulty GM vehicles. She noted that despite millions of cars being recalled, only a small percentage have been fixed because the drivers are often the second or third owners and they're not getting the notices, or they're ignoring them.
