The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee has asked Boeing Co. to make available for an interview a company engineer who filed an internal ethics complaint earlier this year that raised questions about Boeing’s safety culture.

The committee earlier this year began investigating the certification of Boeing’s 737 Max airliner after two crashes killed a total of 346 people, prompting a worldwide grounding of the company’s top-selling jetliner.
