The Golden State is cracking the whip on Volkswagen.

California is cracking down on VW's plans to build a series of electric car chargers in the state by strengthening the rules requiring the carmaker to build charging stations in poor communities, according to a Reuters report. 

Volkswagen has said it intends to spend $800 million in California alone out of the $2 billion it earmarked for U.S. projects such as new electric car charging stations and other projects under its new "Electrify America" division, as part of the wide-ranging $15 billion Dieselgate settlement. But the first $120 million of the carmaker's proposed California investment earmarked for the next two and a half years largely concentrates on busy areas where demand for EV chargers is expected to be high, according to Reuters—thereby giving the company a theoretical leg up on other electric carmakers while still fulfilling the terms of its settlement.
