DeGette, who is the ranking member of the House committee that is investigating GM’s recall of 1.6 million cars, said Friday that she appreciates Barra’s responsiveness.

GM last month recalled Chevrolet Cobalts and other compact cars, including the Saturn Ion, Pontiac G5 and Chevrolet HHR, to have the switches repaired.
