EPA Reaches Settlement With Kodak: The Environmental Protection Agency announced that Eastman Kodak will pay an $8-million penalty and sink millions more into environmental efforts at the largest manufacturing facility in the Northeast. EPA officials at a news conference in Manhattan touted the agreement as a model settlement representing how the agency would like to work on remedies with those firms that have damaged the environment. Eastman Kodak's sprawling 2,200-acre Rochester, N.Y., complex, which makes photographic products, food supplements and other products, employs more than 20,000 people in 400 buildings.
