Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., holds an auto air bag during a hearing before the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, June 2, 2015. Lawmakers are seeking answers from the maker of defective air bags and federal regulators as they focus on the biggest auto-safety recall in the U.S. history. Japan's Takata Corp. agreed last month to declare 33.8 million air bags defective. Faulty inflators inside the air bags are responsible for six deaths and over 100 injuries worldwide.
