What is NHTSA going to do about this?

CBS New reports, “NHTSA and carmakers have known about the problem for decades. One auto company engineer testified fixing the seats would cost on the order of a dollar or so.”

Automakers have until June 23rd 2016 to reassure Senators Markey and Blumenthal, members of the Senate and the House of Representative, of the safety of their cars as more and more people are demanding answers to why this serious problem has not been rectified. In one incident, 16-month old Taylor Warner couldn’t be saved when her family’s Honda Odyssey Minivan met with a collision, with the front seat breaking and falling on top of her.
