Boeing’s safety culture and manufacturing quality, both at the center of a corporate crisis following a January mid-air panel blowout on a near-new 737 MAX 9, were scrutinized on Wednesday in two U.S. Senate hearings. Testimony at a Senate subcommittee raised questions about Boeing’s treatment of whistleblowers, records surrounding the blown-out door plug on the Alaska Airlines narrowbody jet, and production concerns over two separate widebody jets.

President Joe Biden on April 17 called for dramatically higher tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from China, a move aimed at pleasing blue-collar voters in the battleground state of Pennsylvania before the 2024 election.

Tesla on Wednesday asked its shareholders to once again approve CEO Elon Musk’s record-breaking $56 billion pay that was set in 2018, but was rejected by a Delaware judge in January.
