Because of the extent of recalls from General Motors, U.S. Senators are working together to prevent another delayed recall tragedy.
Wednesday afternoon senators introduced the "Hide No Harm Act."
If it passes corporate officers could face jail time for purposely concealing defective products.
"Corporate concealment can kill and the corporate officers who engage in concealment must be held accountable," said Senator Richard Blumenthal.
When Barra appears on Capitol Hill Thursday, it will be her fourth appearance to explain why GM waited ten years to recall defective vehicles.
