Volkswagen has agreed to settle consumer lawsuits and government complaints and pay 15.3 Billion in damages. The State of Connecticut is expected to receive about 16 Million dollars from the total as compensation as well as being eligible for another 51 million for violating environmental laws. Volkswagen was accused of programming cars with it’s 2 liter diesel engine so it could “pass” emission testing.
In a statement to the Associated Press, Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen says the state will put most of the 16 Million in the general fund and the remainder will go into consumer protection funds.
