Statement from Attorneys General Leading Volkswagen Investigation

NEW YORK – Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman joined the Attorneys General of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Oregon, Tennessee and Washington – who are leading the joint investigation by 47 states and the District of Columbia into Volkswagen's import and sale of diesel vehicles – in issuing the following statement today:

"The cash program announced today by Volkswagen appears to be a goodwill gesture and nothing more. It in no way diminishes the seriousness of the deceptive practices and environmental harms that are the subject of the states' investigation, or the determination of the Attorneys General of 48 jurisdictions to hold Volkswagen to account for its conduct."
