Pennsylvania announced a $30.4 million settlement with Volkswagen for environmental damages caused by a device the automaker placed on its cars which allowed excessive pollutants to escape into the air in violation of federal and state laws. The settlement with Volkswagen is part of a $157 million overall settlement agreement between the automaker and the Attorneys General of 10 states, including Pennsylvania. In an earlier settlement with Volkswagen for consumer protection law violations, the automaker agreed to pay an additional $23.1 million in civil penalties and costs to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the Office of Attorney General, and two related state funds. All told, Volkswagen will be paying $53.5 million to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and its agencies under these two settlements for consumer protection and environmental violations. PA, MA
