Beaumont Could Benefit From Volkswagen Lawsuit

Beaumont is one of the cities in Texas that should benefit from the proceeds from a lawsuit

against Volkswagen. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality released a plan last

week to use more than 200 million dollars from the settlement to cut air pollution and help

put more zero-emission vehicles on Texas roads. Texas sued Volkswagen in 2015 for selling

diesel vehicles that were rigged to bypass missions tests. In addition to Beaumont, Houston, 

DFW, San Antonio, and El Paso County will get priority in the state plan.
