Kodak offers $49M trust for environmental issues

ROCHESTER (AP) -- As it prepares to emerge from bankruptcy, Eastman Kodak is still wrestling with its legacy as an industrial polluter.
 
Federal and state officials have filed a dozen claims for past environmental damage against the Rochester company, including demands for up to $10 million to address toxic silver contamination of sediments in the Genesee River.
