House committee to continue investigation of General Motors

June 18, 2014 Updated Jun 18, 2014 at 1:14 PM CDT

A house committee is set to continue its investigation of General Motors Wednesday.

General Motors CEO Mary Barra will answer questions from lawmakers about faulty ignition switches that caused at least 54 accidents and 13 deaths.

This comes on the heels of yet another recall of more than 3 million additional cars.

"I will not rest until these problems are resolved,” said Barra. “As I told our employees, I am not afraid of the truth. And I am not going to accept business as usual at GM. It's time -- in fact, it's past time -- to insist on total accountability so we can unleash the full power of our 200,000 employees, our 21,000 dealers and our 23,000 suppliers. We are a good company, but we can and must be much better."

Earlier this month, GM fired 15 employees following an internal investigation.
