DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman launched an investigation into the recent scandal involving Volkswagen and their diesel-powered vehicles.
“No company should be allowed to evade our environmental laws or promise consumers a fake bill of goods," Schneiderman said in a statement. "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.”
