WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. Senate panel will hold a June 23 hearing on the ongoing investigation into Takata Corp's recall of defective air bags, the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee said in a statement on Wednesday.

"The hearing will examine the role of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the Takata defective air bag recall investigation, Takata’s remediation efforts, how car manufacturers are addressing defective Takata air bags, and ongoing oversight by the Department of Transportation Office of Inspector General," the committee said in a statement
