Wisconsin is not going to miss-out on its share of the national opioid settlement.
Governor Evers yesterday signed the law that will distribute the state’s share of the 26-billion-dollars that drug makers will pay the states, to communities across this state. The governor says local governments need help in dealing with opioid deaths. Under the law, 70-percent of Wisconsin’s money will go toward local governments. But the law stops cities from filing their own lawsuits against drug makers to recoup their costs.
