The state is expected to receive more than $65 million from a multi-state settlement with opioid manufacturer Purdue Pharma and the family which owns it. Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul says the $4.3 billion, nine-year settlement with Purdue Pharma and the Sackler family will help to prevent people from becoming addicted to opioids, and help others get into treatment and recovery programs. Wisconsin is one of 15 states that reached agreement with the maker of OxyContin. Kaul says he anticipates a judge will accept the proposed bankruptcy plan.
