(Bismarck, ND) — North Dakota is set to get about 45-million dollars from a nationwide settlement with drug companies in connection with the opioid crisis. Attorney General spokeswoman Liz Broker says the state will receive a partial disbursement in the second quarter of this year. An exact total for that disbursement isn’t available yet. The state’s Department of Human Services will receive 85-percent of the money for opioid treatment, prevention, and related programs. The remaining 15 percent will be sent to 44 counties and eleven cities.
