Senator McCaskill to grill GM CEO

Tuesday, 01 April 2014 10:37 Published in Local News

U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill will lead a Senate hearing on Wednesday to examine General Motors’ recent decision to recall 2.6 million vehicles for defective ignition switches that have been linked to at least 12 deaths.

McCaskill is Chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Insurance.

The subcommittee has jurisdiction over several federal agencies, including the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Senator McCaskill’s hearing will focus on GM’s decisions, over more than 10 years, to not issue a safety recall, and will consider whether the NHTSA has the capability, data, and resources to effectively monitor vehicle safety defects.

McCaskill’s panel will hear from GM’s CEO Mary Barra, NHTSA Acting Administrator David Friedman, and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Inspector General Calvin Scovel.

Illinois speeders may get a break

Tuesday, 01 April 2014 07:48 Published in Local News

 

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Legislation being considered by lawmakers in Springfield would allow drivers to keep their licenses in hand after getting speeding tickets.
The bill is sponsored by Democratic state Sen. Mike Noland of Elgin.
 
The proposed law would amend the state's vehicle code to let drivers "sign and go" by making a written promise to comply with the terms of the ticket they receive. Drivers who violate the agreement would have their driving privileges suspended under the law.
 
Currently, non-residents of the state can keep their license if they're pulled over while passing through Illinois. Proponents of the law say Illinois residents should have the same privileges.
 
The measure passed out of a Senate committee last week and is now being considered by the full chamber.

Another 11 year old hit by gunfire in St. Louis

Tuesday, 01 April 2014 07:42 Published in Local News

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) - An 11-year-old girl and her father are hospitalized in critical but stable condition after being shot in St. Louis.
 
Police say the shooting happened about 3 a.m. Tuesday as the father and daughter were driving, soon after leaving a White Castle restaurant. Another car followed them from the restaurant and someone in that car began shooting. The man and his daughter were both struck once in the back.
 
The names of the victims have not been released. Police are looking for the shooter.
 
The attack happened less than a week after 11-year-old Antonio Johnson was shot to death inside his north St. Louis home when someone shot through a window.
