A congressional hearing into Toyota’s massive recalls has been postponed because of a snowstorm expected to hit the capital beginning Tuesday afternoon.

A House oversight panel says it hopes to hold the Toyota hearing on Feb. 24.

Lawmakers are expected to hear testimony from Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood; Yoshi Inaba, Toyota Motor North America chairman and CEO; David Strickland, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration administrator; and two safety experts.

Toyota has recalled 8.5 million vehicles globally to fix floor mats that can trap gas pedals, faulty gas pedals that are slow to return to the idle position, and problems with the brakes. The company announced a recall Tuesday of the 2010 Prius and other hybrids over brake problems on bumpy roads.
