Pennsylvania stands to receive a maximum combined payment of approximately $1 billion from settlement funds created by three pharmaceutical companies and a drugmaker to resolve liability for the opioid addiction crisis, state Attorney General Josh Shapiro said July 21.

Pennsylvania was one of the lead states in negotiating these deals and intends to sign them, making Pennsylvania local governments eligible to participate. Pennsylvania’s share will be distributed among the state and local governments under an intrastate allocation agreement, Shapiro explained in a statement.
