Pennsylvania Opioid Misuse & Addiction Abatement Trust Agreement
The Pennsylvania Attorney General (AG) sued various corporations related to the impacts of the Opioid Crisis in Pennsylvania. The AG sued on behalf of the State, County and Local Government entities and has reached a potential settlement with several of the corporations. The State's goal is to have all Counties and Municipalities with a population over 10,000 sign on to the settlement which will increase settlement proceeds for Pennsylvania. The Township will not receive any funds as part of the settlement, however Butler County stands to receive over $9 million for qualifying opioid abatement activities. Accordingly, the Board is being asked to authorize signing onto the PA Opioid Settlement Agreement for the State of Pennsylvania.
Motion to adopt Resolution No. 2022-05, authorizing entering into Settlement Agreements and agreeing to the terms of the Pennsylvania Opioid Misuse and Addiction Abatement Trust.
