Volkswagen AG will pay another $154 million to California over the company’s use of devices to cheat environmental standards, bringing total payments over the emissions scandal to the Golden State to nearly $687 million. A consent decree was approved last month. The consent decree – the fifth partial deal VW has reached with California – calls for $93.8 million to cover penalties for air quality violations and another $60 million over six years, or immediately if the car company prefers, for the costs of the California Air Resources Board’s investigation into the problem.
