Read the Volkswagen blog
Read our blog about the investigation by the EPA that revealed Volkwagen manufactured diesel vehicles with software that cheated emission tests by only turning on the vehicle’s emission control systems when the car was being tested. As a result, VW agreed to multiple settlements, one being a Mitigation Trust Fund. Washington is eligible to receive $112.7 million from this fund.
Weigh in on the goal, principles, and priorities
We have launched a survey that gives people, governments, and groups an opportunity to weigh in. The survey closes at 5 p.m. March 23, 2017.
There are very specific requirements that states have to include in their plans. One of the requirements is giving the public an opportunity to provide feedback on the approach states are taking for project selection. So, we want to hear what you think about the goal, overarching principles, and project priorities that we will include in Washington’s plan when we draft it.
Please watch the introductory video below then take the 3-minute survey.
