Will Congress spur federal Kyle Plush investigation over auto safety?

A key congresswoman blasted America’s top auto safety agency after The Enquirer’s investigation of Kyle Plush’s death and is demanding more answers – and action.

As of Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Illinois, has the authority to get both.

She is the incoming chairwoman of the subcommittee that oversees the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

“The Cincinnati Enquirer report paints a grim picture of an agency failing at its most basic safety duties, and it is unacceptable that NHTSA has failed to fully investigate, and make public any related findings, addressing the issues this report raises,” Schakowsky said. “Honda must act swiftly to ensure the safety of its vehicles, and if they do not, NHTSA should take such action on behalf of the public.”
