The Attorney General has a proposed settlement with opioid distributors Amerisource Bergen, Cardinal Health, McKesson and opioid manufacturer Johnson & Johnson. This settlement offers the opportunity for Pennsylvania and its more populated local governments to receive more than $1 billion to address the ongoing opioid crisis that is ravaging communities across our state.
Each county or municipality with populations larger than 10,000 people or that are litigating should have received notice from the Notice Administrator as well as a unique Subdivision ID number that you can use to register your township at www.nationalopioidsettlement.com. If you have not done so yet, please register your township as soon as possible. Registering ensures that the appropriate contacts within your local government (solicitor, secretary etc.) receive important communications about the settlement, including the proposed intrastate allocation. Additional information about how to join will also be shared through this channel, so it is important for your local government to be registered. Keep in mind that registration is purely administrative and does not obligate your township to join the settlements.
If you did not receive your unique Subdivision ID, please email David Wade at firstname.lastname@example.org. As a reminder, eligible townships include any that have filed suit or those that have not filed suit and have populations greater than 10,000.
