The state Attorney General’s office has reached a preliminary settlement with powerful multi-billion dollar foundation, the Hershey Trust.
The office said an official announcement on the settlement could possibly come this week.
The trust is the largest shareholder in the Hershey Company.
It owns the Hershey Entertainment & Resorts Company and manages more than $12 billion in funds for the Milton Hershey School, which serves underprivileged children.
The investigation stemmed from alleged conflicts of interests for board members and overcompensation.
