GlaxoSmithKline will pay Virginia more than $2 million as part of a settlement between the drug maker and 45 states.

Attorney General Mark Herring (pictured) says the Commonwealth will use the money to support future consumer protection enforcement. The settlement must be approved by a Richmond Circuit Court judge.
