ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — New York is set to receive $230 million as part of the opioid agreement with three major pharmaceutical distributors.
The money is coming from Cardinal, McKesson, AmerisourceBergen and Johnson & Johnson for the companies' roles in the opioid crisis.
New York Attorney General Letitia James said Thursday the state will receive its full piece of the $26 billion settlement.
Fifty-two states and territories and thousands of local governments around the country have signed on to receive their share since July.
