Senators Call For Improved Fatality Reports From Automakers
Posted March 25th, 2014 @ 7:10pm by KFBK News

Two U.S. senators are introducing legislation that would improve the auto industry's reporting of safety problems. 

Democratic Senators Edward Markey of Massachusetts and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut say the bill would require automakers to provide more information about fatal accidents involving their vehicles. 

It would also give the public better access to those reports. 

The bill comes as General Motors faces increased scrutiny over the way it handled a long-running problem with ignition switches linked to 12 deaths.
