Statement From A.G. Schneiderman On Volkswagen Investigation

NEW YORK – Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman issued the following statement regarding an investigation into admissions that Volkswagen cars
employed software to cheat on pollution tests:

“No company should be allowed to evade our environmental laws or promise consumers a fake bill of goods. That is why my office is investigating troubling reports that millions of Volkswagen cars carried software designed to cheat emissions tests that protect our environment. We will seek to uphold New York’s strong tradition of consumer and environmental protections as this investigation proceeds. We look forward to collaborating with Attorneys General across the nation on this matter.”
