Governor Gina Raimondo is announcing a proposed mitigation plan for Rhode Island's share of a 14-and-a-half-million-dollar share of a federal settlement with automaker Volkswagen.  Raimondo says the state wants to use the funds to replace retiring diesel buses with electric buses in the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority fleet.  The governor says some money will also be used to develop a charging station network around Rhode Island for light-duty electric vehicles.  Volkswagen was ordered to pay when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency discovered the company cheated on its vehicle emissions standards.
