Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is announcing a huge, $275-million settlement with Volkswagen over a diesel emissions scam.  Volkswagen sold diesel cars in the U.S., touting them as being environmentally friendly, but that wasn't the case, according to Madigan.

Nearly 30,000 cars sold or leased in Illinois are affected.  As part of the settlement, consumers will get a payment of at least $5,100 and can either have Volkswagen buy back their car or have it fixed to reduce emissions.  You can get more information by following the link:
