Montgomery County will get more than $200,000 as part of a bid-rigging settlement from a nationwide investigation of banks and other financial-service firms.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane said recently that settlements over the last year with Union Bank of Switzerland, JPMorgan Chase, Wachovia, Bank of America, and GE Funding Capital Market Services would send more than $1.9 million to the scheme's Pennsylvania victims.
Montgomery County's share is $220,047, the second-largest in the state. The Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency will get $749,327. Others getting money include the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Swarthmore College, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission.
